- About the work
About the artist
Richard Reeve was an aquatint engraver, mostly of sporting subjects (hunting and racing scenes) after works by contemporary artists. He studied at the Royal Academy Schools and lived and worked in London. He was the father of aquatint engravers Richard Gilson Reeve (1803-1889) and Augustus William Reeve (born 1807). Some later works, apparently by Richard, may in fact be by his son Richard Gilson.
