(1861 - 1923). Oil on canvas; 13" x 18". Original frame. H.A. Driscole, the artist who painted the original picture of the illustration of brook trout shown in our front piece, has made a study of fish for artistic purposes for the past thirty seven years. He paints nothing else but fish and loves to pose them in the act of being captured in their native haunts. Like all good artists, he poses his subjects with imagination and sentiment, and is careful in his details to be absolutely correct in his delineation of a particular fish. He prefers at all times to paint from the real animal and makes a practice of painting pictures of fish for sportsmen who naturally wish to preserve a memento of some particularly good capture they have made when pursuing their craft on lakes and in running streams.
