Watercolour and pencil on paper in a gilt wood frame. Signed and dated: J D 1793
John Downman A.R.A. 1750-1824
He was brought up in North Wales and
learnt to draw in Chester & Liverpool. He went to London and entered the R.A. schools in 1769. Exhibited at the Free Society of Artists 1768 & the Royal Academy 1770-1819. His work is very attractive and distinctive. From the mid 1790’s Downman altered his portraiture style to one which was larger in scale, rectangular in format and more descriptive of his sitter’s personality. In 1804 he was living with his family in West Malling, Kent, but retained rooms in Piccadilly. Examples of his work are in the V. & A. Museum, British Museum and the Wallace Collection.
