Fielding, Anthony Vandyke Copley (1787 -1855)

Probably Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding (1787-1855), commonly called Copley Fielding, was an English painter born in Sowerby, near Halifax, Yorkshire. He became famous for his watercolour landscapes, and in 1810 became an associate exhibitor in the Old Water-colour Society. In 1813 he became 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 and made ample profits. He later moved to Park Crescent in Worthing and died in the town in March 1855.
