  • About the artist
    James Collins, draughtsman and line engraver of topographical and architectural views, was for at least part of his career based at Lynsted near Sittingbourne, Kent. His works include engravings of Westminster Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral, and views of Rochester and Chatham Dock. Collins usually worked on commissions for printsellers or booksellers, but occasionally published prints himself.
    It is believed that Thomas Sadler was the son of the portraitist and miniaturist Thomas Sadler (c.1647-c.1685), who painted John Bunyan in 1684 and who studied for some time under the leading portrait painter of the day, Sir Peter Lely.
