Felix Ferdinand Frederick Raffael Fielding (c.1784-1853) was the second son of N.T. Fielding (q.v.), he painted views of
Cumberland and elsewhere in oil and watercolor. With Copley, he worked for a while in the Enrollment office of the Court of
Chancery before becoming a painter. He was living in the family home in London at various dates between 1808 and 1826, and
in 1810-11 he was in Carlisle. In 1826, he exhibited for the last time, and in the following year he was admitted to the Gray's Inn,
being called to the Bar in 1832. Ten years later he married the Hon. Lady Heslerigg, the daughter of Lord Wodehouse and the
widow of Sir Thomas Maynard Heslerigg, and thereafter he lived at her town house in Upper Brook Street. He continued to
paint as an amateur, and his style owes much to Copley, although it is sometimes rather less definite. His usual signature is
"Frederick F. Fielding".
