James Basire (1730-1802) was a member of The Society of Antiquaries of London and specialised in architectural engraving. Works by Basire hang in museums and galleries throughout the world, including the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Portrait Gallery, London
In 1772, William Blake was apprenticed to Basire for the term of seven years. For a time Blake considered Basire a rival and a threat to his own remarkable career.
