English. 1746-1824. Pupil of Bartolozzi. "One of the most celebrated of English line engravers. Like a conscientious and earnest artist, he worked very close to his originals, seeking to reproduce all the energy and expression which he found in the painting he was translating. He has been highly praised for his skill in rendering the various kinds of drapery."
