Historical Artist - John Downman (1750 - 1824)

John Downman was an English portraitist who specialized in small pencil or charcoal drawings painted with watercolors. He lived London but spent a lot of time traveling across England to paint the portraits of wealthy families. His exquisite pencil portrait drawings, slightly tinted in colour, usually from the reverse, are well known, and many of them are of remarkable beauty. Several volumes of sketches for these drawings are still in existence.
