    HistoryC.J. Staniland was a British artist best known for his social realist work who focused on three main areas: the plight of the London poor, shipwrecks and the lifeboat service, and the hardships of mining communities. Many of these subjects were conceived as illustrations and published in the Graphic and the Illustrated London News. The resulting designs were among the social-realist images which had such an impact on Van Gogh during his stay in England. Indeed turo, a hospital subject and a pit-head scene, are specifically mentioned in his correspondence (see English Influences on Vincent Van Gogh, Arts Council exh., 1974-5, cat. p.54).
    From Christie's catalogue on one of his works.
