This clever artist is a native of England and is now living. His pictures, which generally represent animals are highly esteemed, and produce liberal prices. DESCRIPTION. This Picture is a fair example of his talents; it represents three Tigers in a cave: the light which is cleverly diffused through the picture is introduced from the top; the colouring is remarkably good and the touch free and spirited.
