An excerpt from " Hidden Talents: A Dictionary of Neglected Artists Working 1880-1950 " (Jeremy Wood, England) notes in reference to Langley:
'Painter in oil of rural landscapes and coastal scenes, the subjects of this prolific artist included views in Cornwall, the South of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
Among the titles of known works are 'On the Lledr', 'Wee Bridge, Killarney', 'In the Glen', and 'Sunshine after Rain, a Village in the Thames'.
The work shows a distinct similarity to that of several artists working at the time and the signature could possibly be a pseudonym. The pictures are often large and decorative and have become increasingly popular in recent years.'
