~~Copley Fielding’s father, Nathan, was only a minor portrait and landscape painter, but he begat a small army of artists; his five sons and one daughter all became painters. The third son, Anthony Vandyke Copley, was the leading artist among them.For Copley Fielding, see Marcia Pointon, The Bonington Circle: English Watercolor and Anglo-French Landscape, 1790–18JJ (Brighton: Hendon Press, 1985). His baptismal names reveal some of the ambitions his father had for him. The first two names were given in honor of Sir Anthony Van Dyck (1599–1641), and the third was for the American expatriate John Singleton Copley (1738–1815). To distinguish him from the rest of his family, he was generally known as Copley Fielding. When Anthony was seventeen, the family moved to the Lake District, close to where Julius Caesar Ibbetson...
