Walter Dendy Sadler was an English artist who specialized in genre painting. When he was seventeen he began studying art at Heatherlay’s School in London and then studied further in Düsseldorf—where Safer Than the Bank (see plate 34) was painted—for six years. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in London beginning in 1873. Sadler’s paintings, which are infused with his sense of humor and good nature, are often set in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Very popular, Sadler’s paintings were often reproduced as engravings. His work is in private collections and museums in Liverpool and Manchester, as well as the Tate Gallery in London.
