Edgar Maybery was born in Newport in 1887. Edgar studied art from a young age and at 16 was exhibiting his work. His studies were completed in London at the South Kensington School, and by his mid-30s he was a member of the Royal Cambrian Society and the Royal West of England Academy. During the First World War Edgar served in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers where he spent much of his spare time sketching. It would be most interesting to see some of his works from this time. After his time in service, as a batman or orderly, he returned to Newport. He is best known for his etchings - usually detailed views of buildings.
