Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding (1787-1855)
Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding was a prolific artist, from 1810 often sending forty or fifty watercolors a year to the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS). He was awarded a medal at the Paris Salon of 1824, and then made President of the RWS in 1831. His subjects were usually views of the countryside around London, but he also painted stormy seascapes and the Scottish Highlands. In his later years, he was drawing instructor to the influential critic John Ruskin.
