George Clarkson Stanfield was born on May 1, 1828 in London, England. He was a painter of landscapes, continental scenes, marines and scenes with mountains, rivers, lakes and streams. He was the son of the noted British artist, William Clarkson Stanfield.
He began to exhibit at the Royal Academy, London from 1844 to 1876 as well as at The British Institute and elsewhere.
Stanfield painted views in Northern France, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and Italy, especially the Rhine and the Italian lakes. He also occasionally painted English coastal views.
Although he painted in a distinct and individual style, his works are sometimes confused with those of his father. He usually signed “George Stanfield” or “G.C. Stanfield” whereas his father usually signed “C. Stanfield RA.”
George Clarkson Stanfield died on March 22, 1878 in Hampstead, England.

He died in Paris in 1974.
His diaries and notes, which contain a complete list of his works, are held in the Birmingham City Art Gallery. Thomas Baker exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1831 and 1858, but more frequently at the British Institution and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
