Walden was born in Connecticut and studied in Paris, where he received a medal at the 1903 Salon. He exhibited at the Cardiff Fine Art Society in 1893 and was living near Falmouth in 1897. This painting of 1893-97 is based upon a small oil sketch, also in the collection. It is one of several large industrial and maritime views of Cardiff by the artist. His slightly smaller Les docks de Cardiff was purchased from the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1896 and is now in the Mus?e d'Orsay in Paris.
