Julius Caesar Ibbetson was known mainly as a landscape and marine painter. He worked for a London picture dealer as a young man and first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1785. Three years later he visited China and on his return he began to establish a reputation for his coastal and rustic scenes. However, tragedy struck him in 1794 with the death of his wife and the quick successive deaths of eight of his children.
