(b London, 20 May 1726; d Richmond, Surrey [now in Greater London], 19 July 1770). English portrait painter, a pupil of Knapton. He began as a specialist in pastel and never altogether gave up the medium, but in the 1760s he turned with great success to oils—for a few years he was the only serious rival to Gainsborough and Reynolds.
