|Richard Caton Woodville (Junior)|
Born soon after the battle of Balaclava (7th January 1856) was Richard Caton Woodville (Junior) the prolific English born war artist and son of the American artist of the same name. Having studies in Duseldorf, Woodville was naturally influenced by the German Romantic Movement but more specifically by the Prussian war artists Wilhelm Camphausen and then Eduard von Gebhardt before studying in Russia and Paris.A noted reporter and writer for the Illustrated London News, Cornhill Magazine, Strand Magazine, and The Tatler, Woodville attended the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878) and the 1882 Anglo-Egyptian War where he sketched the campaigns first hand.
