Francis Jukes (1745 to 1812) was a prolific engraver and publisher best known for his marine and topographical prints, the majority being in aquatint.
Robert Dodd (1748 to 1815) lived and worked in Wapping, London. He was a prolific aquatint engraver, publishing much of his own work although, as we see here, his work was also engraved by others. He exhibited at the Society of Artists in London in 1780 and the Royal Academy between 1782 and 1809. His reputation was established for producing fine and detailed portrayals of famous ships, and naval actions of both the American Revolutionary War and the French Wars of 1793 to 1815.
