Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
The obituary for John McAulliffe from the New York Times of December 10, 1900.

"Fatal Fall of an Artist"

John McAulliffe---Painted Horses for Robert Bonner.

John McAuliffe, an artist, seventy years of age, was instantly killed yesterday morning by falling from a window of his apartment at 405 West Twenty-second Street. McAuliffe had been a sufferer from nervous prostration lately, and was not very strong, although he was able to be about and had been out to a barber's shop on Saturday.   He was to have gone to the Speedway yesterday morning as was his custom each Sunday.

His wife saw him moving about the dining room about 8:30 o'clock, and asked him if he felt well.  He answered that he did, but was warm and wished to get some air. About 9 o'clock, she heard the crash of something falling, but did not know that her husband had fallen out of the dining room window until ten minutes later, when a neighbor called her.  One of the sons of McAuliffe found his father dead when he went to the yard below.  It was thought that he had leaned too far out of the window, which has a low sill, and had lost his balance, as did Horace J. Hayden on Friday night.

John McAulliffe was a well known painter of horses.  He was born in Ireland.  He came to this country in 1847, and had always resided in this city.  He was originally a house painter, but, as he had a natural gift for drawing and painting horses, he soon took to that as a business.  He painted extensively for the later Robert Bonner, Commodore Dickinson, Col. Kipp, Sheppard Knapp, Gabe Case, and Mesrs. Wakeman, Hammond, and others.

Mr. McAulliffe's widow, three sons, and one daughter survive him.

Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:

Born in Ireland, John McAuliffe came to America in 1847 and spent much of his life in New York City.

He began his career as a house painter but soon found an outlet for his horse-drawing talents rendering portraits of individuals active in the sport of harness racing.
