James Digman Wingfield painted landscapes, genre and historical subjects, as well as interiors and park scenes. He exhibited his work at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Society of British Artists for over 30 years. Wingfield lived in the Bloomsbury area of London for much of his life, but later moved to Chelsea. His studio sale was arranged through Christie, Manson & Wood (now known as Christie's) in July 1872 and held a few months after his death. The sale contained numerous copies of works of Old Masters by the artist - a field in which he evidently excelled.
