This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was submitted by Edward R. Bentley, Art Historian, Lansing, Michigan. His source is Field and Stream, Volume 14, April, 1910.  His fish portrait of a brook trout titled Hooked was featured on the front piece of this issue.

“Mr. H.A. Driscole, the artist who painted the original picture of the illustration of brook trout shown in our front piece, has made a study of fish for artistic purposes for the past thirty seven years.  He paints nothing else but fish and loves to pose them in the act of being captured in their native haunts.  Like all good artists, he poses his subjects with imagination and sentiment, and is careful in his details to be absolutely correct in his delineation of a particular fish.  He prefers at all times to paint from the real animal and makes a practice of painting pictures of fish for sportsmen who naturally wish to preserve a memento of some particularly good capture they have made when pursuing their craft on lakes and in running streams.  There is no doubt that the picture of a fish caught in a dramatic attitude is really a finer memento of piscatorial prowess than any stuffed fish can be when nailed to a board, with, or without, the accompaniment of a glass box. 

Many of our readers, perhaps, would be interested to know that Mr. Driscole would be happy to have them write him with regard to doing this work for them.  Mr. Driscole resides in Peekskill, New York, and welcomes anglers to his studio, where he has a large collection of paintings on exhibition, representing every known variety of game fish on this continent.”

He advertised himself as a “Piscatorial Artist.”  Peekskill, New York.  Noted as a famous painter of game fish.  Mr. Driscole was known to paint in the local area of Tuxedo and Sterling lakes, among many others, near his home in Peekskill, New York where he featured the salmon and steelhead taken from those lakes.

Following is the obituary of the artist:

“Harry A. Driscole, of 1340 Main sSreet, famous painter of piscatorial subjects, died at the Peekskill hospital on Wednesday, after a long illness, aged 62 years.

Mr. Driscole is survived by a sister; his wife died several years ago.

Paintings by Mr. Driscole adorn the walls of many Peekskill sportsmen.  He frequently painted pictures for covers for Field & Stream and other fishing publications.  A devout disciple of Isaac Walton himself, Mr. Driscole had the ability to place on canvas, true to life, representations of fish.  He was said to be the most famous painter of fishes in the country. 


Obituary, The Highland Democrat, Peekskill, N.Y.  November 3, 1923.
