Edward Penny 1714-1791

Probably the depiction of the Death of Wolfe that is considered the most accurate is this one dated 1763 by Edward Penny. He also painted another crucial image of a Seven Years War redcoat in his Marquis of Granby giving Alms to a sick Soldier and his Family which also shows a rare glimpse of the camp follower of the time. Both images from the Ashmolean Oxford.
