Biography (source- Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Edward Von Siebold Dingle grew up on a Charleston, South Carolina plantation. His mother was a noted bird artist and helped guide his career combining orinthology and art; he also studied with Alfred Hutty. His primary medium was watercolor. Like John James Audubon, Dingle painted from specimens he collected, and his collection of more than a thousand bird skins is now housed in The Charleston Museum. Dingle's work was exhibited in the first American exhibition of bird paintings, held in Los Angeles in 1926. His works also were exhibited at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, and in Canada.
