Engraver: Giovanni Vendramini (1769-1839), an Italian by birth, came to London in 1802 and from early on in his career, worked primarily in stipple, as seen above. Artist: Francis Wheatley (1747-1801), one of the first students admitted to the Royal Acedemy in 1769, is perhaps best known for his paintings of sentimental domestic scenes, such as the 'Cries of London', which were a huge success, inspiring many copies by celebrated artists, such as Zoffany and engravings, such as those by Venramini depicted above.
