Howard J. Shannon was a naturalist, author, and illustrator in the late 19th and early 20th century. He is well known for his book entitled Book of the Seashore (1935). This specific piece is paint on board of two blue crabs fighting under the water surrounded by other crustaceans and sea life. Shannon signed it in the bottom left corner. This drawing was then used in the popular children's magazine St. Nicholas: An Illustrated magazine for Young Folks Vol.32 in 1905. Shannon's work was also shown in exhibitions throughout New York such as at Pratt Institure in 1911, and at the Brooklyn Museum in 1935.
