In 1906, Meteyard returned to England, a move that, following his marriage in 1910 to British-born Isabel Barber, became permanent. By that time, Meteyard’s work was being widely recognized. His work was included in exhibitions of the American Water Color Society and the Society of American Artists in New York; at the Boston Art Club and the Copley Society in Boston; and in the art galleries of the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. He had important solo exhibitions at Doll & Richards Gallery in Boston, the Galerie Georges Petit in Paris, and West’s Gallery and the Fine Art Society in London.
Another work by the artist showing the Houses of Parliament, signed and dated 1915, is part of an American Private Collection.
