About the artist
Anthony Highmore was a painter of portraits and topographical landscapes. He was born in London to the artist Joseph Highmore (1692-1780), who was one of the most important artists of the 18th century. Anthony was a pupil of his father and worked with him up to the mid 1750s. He retired from painting at the same time as his father in the early 1760s.
