Thomas Sherwood La Fontaine(British, )
With an inventory spanning 50 years, La Fontaine had an impressive range of styles, from cartoons to photo-like realism to Rubenesque compositions. La Fontaine began training as an artist while in preparatory school and continued when he studied art in London. His commissions were global in demand, covering Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America. Owing to his extraordinary ability, La Fontaine’s works have been confused with those of Alfred J. Munnings and George Stubbs.
