Ernest Charles Walbourn was born in Dalston, MiddlesexHis father wanted him to be an architect but he had other ideas and ran away from home, setting up residence in the local public house. After this his father relented and encouraged him in his artistic career converting a shed at the bottom of their garden into a studio. The family were moderately well off and owned some property in Tasmania, which provided an income for Ernest’s father and enabled the young artist to receive a formal art training. Walbourn moved to Chingford, Essex and in 1895 exhibited for the first time at the Institute of Oil Painters (which later became the R.O.I). From that date on and for the next twenty-five years he was to exhibit regularly at the major exhibitions in London and the Provinces. He exhibited nine times at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions; typical titles for these works being “In the Orchard” 1900, “Summertime” 1917 and “The Mill” 1920.
