William Langley was one of a few pseudonyms used by the painter Daniel Sherrin, along with L. Richards and Horace Gallon. Daniel Sherrin (1868-1940) initially began by painting sailing ships, coastal scenery and sand dunes around the Norfolk and Suffolk coast, but his work eventually took him all around the country, especially to Scotland. He was, at one point, commissioned to paint Sandringham for King George V and the painting still hangs in Buckingham Palace. During WW1, he also designed very successful recruitment posters for Lord Kitchener. His father was the artist John Sherrin I.A. and his own son was to become the acclaimed artist, Reginald Daniel Sherrin.
