John Glover, landscape painter, was born in 1767 in Leicestershire, the son of a farmer. He was largely self-taught as an artist and began his working life as a school teacher in Cumbria and later as a Drawing Master in Lichfield. During the 1790s he began to paint in oils and exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1795. He was a founder member of the Society of Painters in Water-colours and served as President in 1807 and 1814/15. He was also a founder member of the Society of British Artists in 1824. After emigrating to Australia with his family in 1831, he settled at Mill’s Plains on the Nile River in Tasmania, where he remained until his death. There he combined sheep farming with painting landscapes.
