TAIT, Arthur Fitzwilliam, painter, born at Livesey Hall, near Liverpool, England, 5 August, 1819. He studied at the Royal institution, Manchester, but is mainly self-taught. In 1850 he came to the United States, where he soon attracted attention by his pictures of animal life. He was elected an associate of the National academy in 1853, and an academician in 1858. Mr. Tait has studied and sketched much among the Adirondack mountains, and several of his hunting scenes are laid in that region. His pieces include "A Duck and her Young" (1868); "Ruffled Grouse" (1869);" Woodcock Shooting," " Snowed in," and " Halt on the Carry" (1871) ; "Racquette Lake" (1873) ; "There's a Good Time coming" (1876) ; "The Portage" ; "Jack in Office" (1885) ; " Thoroughbreds" and "Startled" (1887) ; and "A Mother's Solicitude" (1888). His "Quail and Young" (1856) is in the Corcoran gallery at Washington. Many of his works have been lithographed or engraved.
