Richard Caton Woodville (Jr., is it not?) is certainly a favorite artist of mine and one of his contemporary prints holds a place of honor above my sofa. I was shocked to hear that his final resting place was unmarked until just recently and this Yank would have attended the event in a heartbeat had I known beforehand (and were "The Pond" a just bit narrower). My thanks to you Brian for the enlightenment and to all the others , particularly to Tony Woodville, who worked to make this belated recognition come about.

List of Major Works by Richard Caton Woodville 1856-1927

Is this the sort of data you seek?. A list of minor works is in preparation but it is a mammoth task.


No complete list of Richard’s works survives, and it would probably be impossible to construct one now. The following are those major works on military subjects which have been documented to date. There may be others which have disappeared, though some may still survive in private collections.
