Alexander Pope Jr. ( 1849-1924 ) was an American sporting artist best known for his animal and still life paintings. Born in Dorchester, Massachusetts,  a self taught painter Pope also studied sculpture with the artist William Copley. Pope continued creating sculptures through the 1880s and later became a member of the elite Copley Society of Boston. He published two important portfolios of chromolithographs after his watercolors: “Celebrated Dogs of America” (1882) from which this plate comes and “Upland Game Birds and Water Fowl of the United States” (1878).
