Adriaen van Ostade (1610-1685) was one of the most prolific Dutch artists of the 17th century. Trained in the studio of Franz Hals, he became well-known for his lively genre paintings of peasants, domestic and agricultural work, and the trades. Later, influenced by the style of Rembrandt, he employed a warmer palette and deeper chiaroscuro effects, which is the style of these works. He is represented in important museum collections around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Louvre and the Hague.
Anthony Walker (1726-1765) was a British draftsman and engraver often employed by Boydell. An English Printmaker/Artist who was born in 1726 and died in 1765. He lived in England. Many of his works can be viewed at the Tate Gallery in London. He was also a renowned draftsman. He served an apprenticeship to John Tinney, who produced many tographical plates. Much of his early signed work were engravings after his own drawings for the book trade. Later, he became a sought-after engraver of large single-issue prints, including five after Old Master paintings for John Boydell (1719 - December, 1804) who was an English publisher, noted for his reproductions of engravings (He also became Lord Mayor of London.)
John Boydell (1719-1804) was a successful and influential printseller and engraver. He also encouraged the development of engraving in England with, among other things, his prints illustrating scenes from Shakespearean plays. In 1773, his nephew Josiah Boydell (1752-1817) became his business partner and later his successor, trading as J. & J.

George Lambert, English landscape and scenery painter born in 1710 (or 1700?). Died on 30 November (or 30 or 31 Jan?) 1765:
.. A student of Warner Hassels (fl 1680–1710), portrait painter in Godfrey Kneller’s circle.Lambert’s earliest dated painting, Classical Landscape with Two Figures (1723), already shows the influence of the landscape painter John Wootton. From 1726 Lambert worked in London as a scene painter at Lincoln’s Inn Fields Theatre; he followed the impresario John Rich to Covent Garden Theatre in 1732 and continued to work there until his death. In 1735 he was a founder-member of the prestigious Beef-Steak Club, an association of actors, men of letters and artists, among them William Hogarth and Rich. He was also involved in clubs and movements organized by artists to improve their professional standing and supported Hogarth’s efforts in 1735 to establish artists’ legal copyright over their engraved work. — Samuel Scott was an assistant and Jonathan Skelton a student of Lambert. Lambert was the first British-born artist to specialize in landscape painting. Previously, this was dominated by Dutch and Flemish artists. Landscape painting developed in order to supply landowners with scenes of their houses, estates and sporting activities. But during the eighteenth century, poets and painters began to explore the appeal of the landscape in a more general way. Lambert was a friend of Hogarth and Samuel Scott, and a respected member of London's artistic community. He was the first native-born painter to devote himself entirely to landscape, both classical and topographical.

"Vestigi del Settizonio di Seuero Imperatore, detto la Scola di Vergilio in Romany" part 2 of his Roman sequence. 23 x 30 cm. £250 c 1660 Gabriel Perelle, (1604 - 1677)An eminent French designer and engraver, Gabriel Perelle received instructions in painting, etching and engraving from Daniel Rabel. His first published etchings bear the date of 1635. For the following thirty years Perelle created a large number of superbly crafted etchings of landscapes and views. Gabriel Perelle's last etchings date from around 1665. After that time he was commissioned by the King of France to draw maps and military plans. Although he engraved designs after the work of other masters, such as, Poussin, Paul Bril, Asselyn and Silvestre, most of Perelle's graphic oeuvre (including this original example) was both designed and engraved by his hand. And interestingly, even with his topographical views, Perelle frequently embellished his compositions with imaginary ruins and other objects. Thus Perelle's etched views are also Utopian landscapes of the mind.

Bartolomeo Pinelli (Italian, 1781-1835)Now largely forgotten, Bartolomeo Pinelli (1781-1835) was one of Ottocento Italy's mostpopular draftsmen. Living and working primarily in Rome, Pinelli studied at the Accademia di San Luca in Rome and at the Accademia diBelle Arti in Bologna, where he was supported financially by the nephew of Pope Benedict XIV.[i] Largely eschewing painting in favor of themore immediate and intimate medium of drawing, Pinelli associated himself with the vedutisti, who painted Roman views primarily for aforeign market of tourists and Italophiles.[ii] Perhaps due to his largely touristical customer base, Pinelli's drawings of Roman lifefocus on everyday bucolic happenings.
