Other Information Additional information provided by James Measell :

Albert Gyngell (1841-1894) was employed as a glass etcher at the J. & J. Northwood firm, and he first enrolled in the male evening class at Stourbridge on 17 January 1870. (1)

Gyngell also appears in the Register of Students for the evening class during 1871-1872 but not thereafter. He was the first Stourbridge School student to gain a national medal in the Department of Science and Art competitions. Gyngell's medal was awarded in 1870 for his design for a fan.

Albert Gyngell and his family moved to Worcester sometime after 1872, and he pursued a career in fine art, acquiring a sound reputation for landscape pictures. (2)

During the Worcestershire Exhibition of 1882, Gyngell exhibited two paintings, Autumn Afternoon on the Severn (priced at £63) and Rustic Bridge--Beddgelert, North Wales (priced at £150). (3)

In 1884, Albert Gyngell was active in the Worcester Pen and Pencil Club, exhibiting a watercolour painting, Hay-stacking on the Banks of the Severn, and three landscape oil paintings: A November Evening, Oat Harvest in the Lledr Valley and View on the Llugwy. (4)

In 1889, two of his works, By the Brookside and The Sound of the Scythe, were exhibited at the Royal Academy. (5)

Shortly after Gyngell's death in January 1894, his widow commissioned a Worcester auctioneer to sell some 'fifty oil paintings and water colour drawings, being the contents of the Studio of the late Mr. Albert Gyngell, deceased.' (6)

Gyngell's son, Albert Edmund Gyngell (1866-1949), was a prize student at the Worcester School of Art before his own success as an artist, although some art historians have mistakenly attributed his father’s landscape pictures to him. (7)
