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.
