Thomas Hearne (1744 - 1817) was an English landscape painter, engraver and illustrator. In 1777, in conjunction with engraver William Byrne (1743-1805), he began work on the drawings for 'The Antiquities of Great Britain'. He is said to have done much to revive attention to Gothic architecture, and to have been one of the founders of the English school of watercolours. Hearne's art influenced Thomas Girtin and J M W Turner. From 1781 to 1802 Hearne exhibited drawings of landscape and antiquarian remains at the Royal Academy, London. He was a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries . Dance was an architect, draughtsman and founder member of the Royal Academy.

Accompanied by original descriptive text . One small spot.
