Artist bio:

John McAuliffe, born in Ireland, emigrated to the United States in 1847. 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.
