Biography

Caricaturist, with a long career. Plates usually use aquatint and are hardly ever coloured. First notable for his works 1783-4 on the Fox-North coalition published by Thomas Cornell. Later works were published by Hannah Humphrey.
The BM has a superb collection of his work in three albums collected by Sarah Banks, and obviously supplied directly to her by Sayers (see 298.d.2). There are numerous annotated and working proofs.
