(b ?London, ?1740; d Twickenham, Middlesex [now in Greater London], ?14 Jan. 1813). English landscape and marine painter. He was a pupil of Samuel Scott, 1754–9, and is also said to have studied with Richard Wilson. His early landscapes were topographical views, including ‘portraits’ of country houses, but after a visit to the Continent (1765–6) he painted largely from his memories of France and Italy.
