A fine early watercolor with gum arabic highlighting, the subject a stag in a landscape, by a well-listed English 19th century artist, NEWTON SMITH FIELDING (1799-1856). The work measures 5 3/8" by 8" and is laid on another piece of paper. Including the present mat, dimensions are 16" by 20". The signature is actually on that second piece of paper, in pencil, at lower center. Fielding was born in England and died in Paris. Evidently he showed early talent as his works were exhibited at the Society of Painters in Watercolor as early as 1815. He is known as a painter of animals, but also executed a variety of prints including aquatints and lithographs as well as engravings. In the 1850's he published a number of "how-to" books, and while in Paris he was for a time the drawing teacher of the royal family of Louis Philippe. This drawing is in excellent condition considering its great age. The sheet to which it is affixed has some missing corners but that would be hidden by any mat.
