Myles Birket Foster was a British painter, engraver and illustrator active during the mid to late 19th century. He worked primarily in watercolor, as well as engraving and drawing media.

He was noted for his landscapes, a subject of his that I run hot and cold on. I like those that focus on the evocation of the natural world, and pull back from a large number of them that offer sentimental idealized scenes of rural life.
