William Wood 1769-1810
Born in Suffolk 1769. He entered the Royal Academy Schools December 1785 aged 16. He worked in London exhibiting at the Royal Academy and British Institute 1788-1808.
He painted portrait and subject miniatures, as well as a few eye miniatures, watercolour drawings and landscapes. He worked in Bristol 1791 and 1803, his London address included, 30 St James’s Place, and 8 Cork Street.
Wood’s technique is fairly easily recognisable, his portraits have an honesty about them and are well drawn and expressive. He used pleasing warm colouring and shaded the features darkish brown strokes.
Examples of his work are in the Victoria & Albert Museum, Ward Usher Museum, Lincoln and many private collections including that of the Queen.
