Description: Chase after the Wolf when Carrying off the Lamb. Samuel Howitt (1756-1822). Watercolor on paper. Preparatory Studies for Oriental Field Sports: Being a Complete, Detailed, and Accurate Description of the Wild Sports of the East...11 3/4 x 17 inches sheet, 20 1/2 x 25 1/2 inches framed. Samuel Howitt, genius, artist, sportsman, concentrated his considerable artistic talents on picturing scenes of horse-racing and hunting in all its aspects. An enthusiastic sportsman himself, he had sufficient family money to paint at first only for his own and his friends? pleasure. However, this fortune was quickly dissipated and Howitt moved to London... [He made a living], partly by etching at which he was extremely skilled. The light touch of his pen, the delicacy of his brushwork and his experience of field sports ensured all that he drew was animated and accurate.

Artist or Maker: Samuel Howitt

Literature: Watercolor on paper
