Biography

A keen sportsman as well as animal painter, Wolstenholme turned to painting full-time relatively late in life, around 1800. Moving to London c.1805, he established himself as a sporting artist and achieved reasonable success until 1825, after which he produced very little. Many of his works were engraved, a number of them by his son, Charles Dean Wolstenholme (1798-1883), who spent most his early life as a specialist printmaker. Later in his life, Charles Dean turned increasingly to painting, producing work stylistically very similar to his fatherís, such that confusion between the two is very easy.
