Edridge ARA (Paddington 1768 – 23 April 1821 London), was the son of a tradesman and apprenticed at the age of fifteen to William Pether, a mezzotint engraver and landscape painter, and became proficient as a painter of miniatures, portraits and landscapes.
His first portraits were on ivory, and he subsequently turned to paper with black lead and India ink to which he added very ornate backgrounds, but he later produced a large number of elaborately finished pictures in water colours with light backgrounds. These were followed by others in which he combined the depth and richness of oil paintings with the freedom of water colour drawings.
His subjects included Lord Nelson, the explorer Mungo Park, the Methodist missionary Thomas Coke, the Prime Minister William Pitt and John Welsey.
