Historical Artist - Peter De Wint (1784 - 1849)

Peter De Wint began his career as apprentice to John Raphael Smith, an engraver and painter. He then studied at the Royal Academy. He preferred to paint in oils but was more successful with his watercolors. He mostly painted English landscape, seeing as his only trip out of the country was a brief visit to Normandy in 1828. De Wint was also a popular and respected teacher. A number of his pictures are in the National Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum and The Collection, Lincoln.
