Still Life with Game, Oil on canvas, 38¼ x 44 in, 97 x 112 cm, Signed 1741.

Charles Collins (c.1680 – 1744) was an Irish painter.

Born in Dublin, Collins was primarily a painter of animals and still-life. He was one of the first still-life artists in Britain of great quality, following the tradition of arranged breakfasts, still-lifes or cabinets of curiosities, where items of high value and ostentation were painted.[1] He died in London in 1744.
