About the artist
Theodore Henry Adolphus Fielding was born in Yorkshire, the son of a painter. In 1819, he married Mary Anne (daughter of Robert Walton), also a watercolour painter. From 1823, he worked with publisher J. F. Ostervald in Paris, who had also employed his brothers Thales and Newton Fielding. The three brothers established an atelier in Paris. Fielding returned to work as a teacher and engraver in London. In 1826 he was appointed teacher of drawing and perspective at the military college of the East India Company in Addiscombe and moved to nearby Croydon. He produced numerous sets of prints after works by himself, his brother, Copley Fielding, and Bonington and also published books on painting and engraving. He died aged about 70 in Croydon.
