Life and work
He was born in Liverpool, England, was initially taught art by William Daniels (1813–1880), then went on to study at the Liverpool Academy. On a visit to London in 1850 he became converted to the Pre-Raphaelite style. He exhibited his new style of painting with the work Burd Helen at the Royal Academy, London in 1856. The picture caught the eye of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Ruskin which helped establish Windus as a respected artist.
His first painting was oil on canvas titled Black Boy, 1844.
