Wilfred Williams Ball (1853-1917) was a landscape etcher specialising in river scenes and on his larger plates he used tone to great affect. He painted landscapes and marine subjects and exhibited widely at the Royal Academy; Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers; Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours; and many others. He became President of the Society of British Artists in 1886. He was also a member of The Arts Club from 1896 until 1916.

Wilfrid lived most of his life in London but he travelled widely throughout Europe and developed a close relationship with the counties of Sussex and Hampshire. His book 'Sussex - Painted by Wilfrid Ball' published in 1906 and 'Hampshire - Painted by Wilfrid Ball' published in 1909 brought his paintings to a much wider audience and significantly enhanced his popularity. Many of his paintings were used, and still are, on postcards and greetings cards.
