Details

George Stubbs (1724-1806) was a superb animal painter especially of the horse. George Dance (1741-1825) was an architect and portrait draughtsman. George Dance trained and practised as an architect, his most important works included the rebuilding of Newgate prison, the designs for St Luke's Hospital and the front of Guildhall. He was one of the founder members of the Royal Academy in 1768 and Professor of Architecture between 1798-1805. Dance is probably best known for the series of over 200 drawings of his friends and contemporaries which he 'sketched from life' between 1793 and 1810. The majority of these drawings are half-length profiles to the left, described by Joseph Farington in his diaries as exhibiting a 'remarkable likeness' to the sitter. This engraving comes from that series. William Daniell (1769-1837)worked predominantly as a topographical draftsman and engraver in aquatint. His works include Oriental Scenery (1795-1808) - published after a tour of India in 1794 with his uncle, the artist Thomas Daniell. Daniell entered the Royal Academy schools in 1799, where in 1807 he was elected Associate, and in 1822 a full academician. In 1802, Daniell commenced work on translating George Dance's series of half-length portraits of 'eminent characters' into soft ground etching.
