Edward Charles Williams (1807-1881)

Edward Charles Williams is the brother most associated with the 'Williams style' and his early work is often confused with that of his father Edward Williams. Their work shares the same style and suggestion of a Dutch influence, but there is a superior draughtsmanship in the figures of an E.C. Williams work and during the course of his career, a definite pattern of development can be seen in his work. William Shayer, a well-known painter of the English village scene, collaborated frequently with Edward Charles Williams and it was these joint paintings that had a marked effect on the individual style of Williams' work. EC Williams was sometimes called 'Morning Williams' owing to his very frequent use of this time of day. He also painted coastal scenes and drew many of these from Hastings, Sussex and the Isle of Wight.
