About this Item: Boston: Armstrong & Comp., 1882, 1882. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. Alexander Pope, Jr. (1849-1924) From Celebrated Dogs of America Boston: Armstrong & Comp., 1882 Chromolithograph 11 ¾" x 15 ½" Alexander Pope Jr. was a renowned American sporting artist who specialized in animal and still life paintings. Born in Dorchester, Massachusetts in 1849, he briefly studied sculpture with the prominent artist William Copley and essentially taught himself to paint. Although primarily lauded as a painter, he continued producing sculptures well into the 1880s and later became a member of the famed art association the Copley Society of Boston. In 1878 and 1882, he published two important portfolios of chromolithographs after his watercolors: Upland Game Birds and Water Fowl of the United States and Celebrated Dogs of America respectively. Pope’s work is recognized in many private collections and museums, including the M.H. De Young Memorial Museum and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Seller Inventory # aE0911c
