William Rudolph Ernest Spence was born in St Pancras, London on 29 July 1862, the youngest son of Irish born Lewis Henry Spence, a merchant, and his wife Ann.



He was educated at a boarding school in Leominster, but returned to London in 1881. Ernest married Mabel Beatrice du Cane in London in 1885, and went on to have two sons and a daughter. The family moved to Guildford in 1894.



'Through the Woods' was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1913. The title could be in reference to a Rudyard Kipling poem "The Way through the Woods", written a few years before this was painted.

Spence exhibited nine other works at the Royal Academy between 1884 and 1913, including 'Solicitude', 'Circe' and 'The River Wey'. He also exhibited at Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and elsewhere.
