Author name: Arthur Joseph Meadows.
(1843-1907). Born within a family of painters, Arthur Joseph Meadows may rightly be considered the leading member of this prodigious and prolific group. Meadows was very successful financially with his art in his lifetime and gifted works to many private individuals and other artists that he befriended. His upper society lifestyle enabled him to be quite active in early humanitarian efforts, and he was involved in the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society in the mid-Victorian Age.
