Samuel A. Kilbourne – Artist I Admire.

Best known for his fish paintings, Samuel A. Kilbourne was a native of Bridgetown, Maine. He began painting landscapes, until about 1858 when he took up the painting of fish. He was quite successful painting fish and was patronized both by sportsmen and scientists. At the time of his death he had just completed a series of illustrations for a book on Game Fish of the United States.
