William Holbrook Beard
William Holbrook Beard (April 13, 1825 – February 20, 1900) was an American painter. Beard was born in Painesville, Ohio. Beard was a prolific artist. His humorous treatment of bears, cats, dogs, horses and monkeys, generally with some human occupation and expression, usually satirical, gave him a great vogue at one time, and his pictures were largely reproduced.
