This is the Signed original Gouache painting by G W Backhouse.

The white rhinoceros or square-lipped rhinoceros is the largest extant species of rhinoceros. It has a wide mouth used for grazing and is the most social of all rhino species.

Left alone they are timid animals but when provoked they run at high speed for a beast that can weigh as much as 3 tonnes.
