E. C. Murphy Collection

Painting signed by W. H. Ward Revised Date (1850-1882)

Betty was fortunate enough to find this painting in Dublin about thirty years ago. 

John Hamshere of Hamshere Gallery, UK. Made contact  recently  regarding the date of the Ward painting.  He suggested   that the painting was by W H Ward, a Birmingham painter,   1850-1882, rather than William Ward, 1766-1826.

Copies of the W H Ward signature and of the framerís stamp on the back of the canvas were sent to Mr Hamshere.  The framerís name and Birmingham address on the back seemed to confirm that the painting was by W H Ward 1850-1882.

John Hamshire was kind enough to send the following copy of an oil painting by Frederick Thomas Daws (1878-1949) which he says was published in early Irish Wolfhound material.

Thank you John Hamshere
