Watercolour painter. Pupil of Henry Sass, and student at RA Schools. His main work was in watercolour, in which he produced a large number of subjects illustrating literature (chiefly Chaucer, Spenser, and Shakespeare), history, biblical subjects and daily life. Only a small proportion of his pictures are in oil (eg 'The Canterbury Pilgrims', RA 1874). In 1842 his watercolour of 'The Woman Taken in Adultery' was bought by Prince Albert and 9 years later he was appointed "instructor of historical painting" to the Royal Family. For 21 years he continued to teach various members of the Royal Family and many of his best works were acquired by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and his royal pupils. He also produced a large number of designs for book illustration. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1835-1874.
