This is a photo of E.A. Abbey, R.A. that appeared in an article about him in Harper's Monthly Magazine for May 1900, when Abbey was in his late forties. By that time he had become probably the best known and admired illustrator, painter and muralist in both Britain and the United States.
This is Abbey's Studio we are told (but the eminent author, painter and art critic Henry Strachey neglects to tell us where in England it is -- or perhaps it's an editorial oversight). It doesn't take an art historian or genius to learn from the photo that this is one painter who works on a grand scale. Click on image to enlarge.

Abbey was a mere lad of 21 when this sketch appeared in Harper's Monthly Magazine for January 1873 in the section entitled "Editor's Drawer" depicting a "persuasive rascal, this wandering dog-fancier." The words are not likely those of Abbey but of the London correspondent for the magazine.
Abbey's illustration of French refugees for the same section in Harper's Monthly Magazine appeared in the April 1873 issue. Click on these images to enlarge them.
