Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding was born November 22, 1787 and died March 3, 1855. He was commonly called Copley Fielding,
and was an English painter born in Sowerby, near Halifax and famous for his watercolour landscapes. At an early age
Fieldingbecame a pupil of John Varley. In 1810 he became an associate exhibitor in the Old Water-colour Society, in 1813 a full
member and in 1831 President of that body (later known as the Royal Society of Watercolours), until his death. In 1824 he won a
gold medal at the Paris Salon alongside Richard Parkes Bonington and John Constable. He also engaged largely in teaching the art

Copley Fielding was a painter of much elegance, taste and accomplishment and has always been highly popular with purchasers.
He painted a vast number of all sorts of views (occasionally in oil-color) including marine subjects. Specimens of his work from
1829 to 1850 can be seen in the water-colour gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum and other major museums. Among the
engraved specimens of his art is the Annual of British Landscape Scenery, published in 1839.

Albert Museum in London.
