Tait Arthur Fitzwilliam Chicks .jpg

One of America's finest animal painters, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait was born in Liverpool, England in 1819, and died in Yonkers, New York in 1905. As a young man in the 1840's, he assisted George Catlin with a traveling Indian Gallery in Europe. At age 31, he moved to New York and painted realistic nature scenes. When Currier and Ives printed Tait's sporting views, he fame and recognition increased. He created paintings of cattle with James Hart and works of western life with Louis Mauer. His works are in many museums across America, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
