This is possibly a caricature of Harold Frank Wallace (1881-1962), the painter, illustrator and writer, who specialised in country pursuits. While working as a barrister, he enjoyed the recreations of shooting and deerstalking, and recorded these in a series of illustrated books, beginning with Stalks Abroad (1908). A journey to the Far East resulted in Big Game of Central and Western China (1913). By the early 1920s, he had become a member of the Zoological Society and the Royal Geographical Society. Through that decade, he developed as a painter of watercolours, which he exhibited in London and Edinburgh.
