In 1826 he entered the schools of the Royal Academy in London, and gained many prizes there, though he was not successful in winning the gold medal for painting. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1831, sending ‘A Portrait of J. C. Bishop, esq.,’ and ‘Vulcan's Cave.’ He continued to be a frequent exhibitor of subject pictures, portraits, and miniatures there and also at the British Institution and Suffolk Street Galleries up to 1870.

We use the same cataloguing terms as most major sale houses, the terms that appear in the listing are also used on the certificates of authenticity. The cataloguing terms that we use have the following meanings;where the bold text which forms the listing's heading reads 'by' and is followed by the artist's full name (or the artist's initials, if his full name is unrecorded), the work is in our opinion by the artist; where the expression "attributed to" is used, the work is in our opinion possibly a work by the artist, in whole or in part; where the expression 'circle of' is used, the work is in our opinion a work of the period of the artist and showing his influence; where the expression 'follower of' is used, the work is in our opinion a work executed in the artist's style but not necessarily by a pupil; where the expression 'manner of' is used, the work is in our opinion a work executed in the artist's style but of a later date; where the term "after" is used, the work is in our opinion a copy or pastiche (of any date) of a work by the artist. Where the term 'signed...' is used in our opinion the work has been signed by the artist, where the term 'with signature...' or 'bears signature...' is used in our opinion the signature is by a hand other than that of the artist.In very fine condition. The canvas not lined though with a ingle patched repair lower centre with professional corresponding restoration. There is some light discolouration to the varnish though remaining acceptable and highly attractive. Well framed and ready to hang.
