Notes for Alfred GATLEY

An obituary for Gatley appeared in the Art Journal: He had a mind of singular independence. The style he chose admitted of no facile compromise of the classic with the pictorial. It descended not to seek an easily purchased popularity by softly blended forms after the manner of the Romantics. The school to which he belonged was stern and strict. The English public failed to comprehend the largeness of his manner.

There is a large number of works by Alfred Gatley in a variety of locations around the UK. Details of many of these are listed on a page in this web site - Happy Valley: Alfred Gatley, history

The 200th anniversary of Alfred Gatley's birth was celebrated on 15th January 2015 by Bollington Civic Society with the unveiling of a blue plaque on Spring House, Oak Lane, Kerridge, Cheshire. [Webmaster]
