Artist:

Edward Bristowe (1878-1876)

Bristowe was born in Eton, Berkshire, the son of an heraldic painter. At an early age he was patronised by the Princess Elizabeth, the Duke of Clarence (afterwards William IV). He had great sympathy with animals, some power of rendering their characteristic movements and expressions, and is said to have been a friend of and given advice to Sir Edwin Landseer. In 1809 he exhibited a painting, “Smith shoeing a Horse“, at the Royal Academy, and was an occasional exhibitor there and at the British Institution, and Society of British Artists, until the year 1838, when he exhibited the “Donkey Race“.

Bristowe excelled in the drawing of monkeys, cats, and horses.
