fl. 1898 - 1925.
A fairy and genre painter who is known to have worked in Beckenham, Croydon and Esther. He worked for Punch - 1902-4 and seems to have been inspired by the work of Richard Doyle. His subjects were often inspired by Shakespeare and this painting comes from lines in the Tempest, sung by Ariel.
