After the First World War and following a brief period of farming, Wiffen attended Nottingham School of Art under Joseph Else. He taught graphic design at Liverpool School of Art and retired in 1961. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Liverpool Academy and Royal Cambrian Academy, the two latter of which he was a member. He was also a member of the Deeside Art Group. This is a portrait of Frank Lambert, director of the Walker Art Gallery from 1932 to 1952. Wiffen and Lambert were both members of the Sandon Society, where this portrait was drawn.
