William H Ward was a Birmingham artist. He painted mainly fruit, still lifes and genre subjects.
He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1850 to 1872 as well as at Suffolk Street, British Institution and various other venues. William Ward exhibited in Birmingham between 1877 and 1882. He was elected a member of the Birmingham Society of Artists in 1856 and was listed in the local directory between 1858 and 1868.
William Ward carries forward his very fine technique from his small studies of still life subjects. He was known to have only at first painted his figurative subjects on very small canvases until such time his confidence grew.
