Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811)

Henry William Bunbury (1750 - 1811) was the son of Sir William Bunbury of Mildenhall, Suffolk. After completing his studies at Cambridge University he began to draw caricatures and other comic subjects, the first of which were etched and published in 1771. Bunbury then quickly rose to become one of the greatest satirical artists of the day with his etchings such as the series entitled, Hints to Bad Horsemen. He also became close friends with the great artist, Thomas Rowlandson, who later engraved many of Bunbury's designs. Throughout his career, Henry Bunbury enjoyed the patronage of the Duke of York who appointed him his Equerry in 1787.

Info London.Thomas Macklin, Poets Gallery. 1792. Image size, 17 3/4 x 13 3/4 ins. Page size, 18 1/4 x 16 1/4 ins. Original line and stipple engraving by I.Chapman,

The Bunbury-Macklin Shakespeare stipple engravings represent the best examples of this complicated process. Macklin created 'The Poet's Gallery' (1788-1799), which became England's second largest publishing house next to John Boydell's 'Shakespeare Gallery'.Macklin responded to Boydell's series by issuing his own Shakespeare etchings from 1792 to 1796. These works of art, however, were significantly different from Boydell's grandiose engravings. The entire series of twenty-five engravings and etchings was designed by Henry Bunbury, who chose mainly the comedies

John Chapman: One of the most gifted stipple engravers of the late eighteenth century, relatively little is known of the life of John Chapman. It is believed he was born to a poor family and that most of his considerable skills were self taught.
