The loose, often scratchy handling of the paint is characteristic of the artist. Ward trained as an engraver and his early pictures were influenced by his brother-in-law, the painter of rural life, George Morland. Now best known for his animal paintings, Ward also undertook portraits, landscapes and history scenes.
