About the Artist: from The Dictionary of Victorian Painters, "Landscape and animal painter. A self-taught
artist, he lived in Southampton, and painted
mostly in Hampshire and the New Forest. His
work falls into two distinct categories;
firstly, woodland scenes with gipsies, rustic
figures and animals, and secondly, beach
or coastal scenes with boats and fisherfolk.
He was a prolific artist, and tended to repeat
certain formulae. Exhib. mostly at SS (338
works), also at RA 1820-43, and BI. His work
is in many English provincial museums."
