Samuel HOWITT (1756-1822)

The son of a Nottinghamshire family of squires, Howitt became a professional artist specialising in Sporting subjects. He began as an amateur but due to financial difficulty he turned professional.Howitt worked at a private academy in Ealing as a drawing master early in his professional career.He began painting as a hobby. He enjoyed hunting and racing, mimicking this interest in his work. When the family fortune dwindled Howitt move to London were he would make a career out of his talent, flourishing as a professional artist. Samuel Howitt first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1785, and went on to establish a formidable reputation, perhaps second only to George Stubbs, for his accurate and lively depictions of natural history and sporting subjects. His superior watercolors and aquatints depict dramatic racing and hunting scenes as well as an array of conventional and exotic animals. He was the brother-in-law of Thomas Rowlandson, and although he was largely self-taught in his profession, he belonged to the artistic circles of the day. His first exhibition was in 1783 at the Incorporated Society of Artists, where he continued to exhibit. He married the sister of the celebrated caricaturist, Thomas Rowlandson (at times their work was draughted similarly).Samuel HOWITT drew for several Published works, such as Etchings of Animals (1803), Oriental Field Sports (1805 and later), Fables of Aesop (1809 and later) and NOTABLY for the BRITISH SPORTSMAN.There are some 72 fine copperplate engravings. Published in 1779/1800 and in later editions to c.1812.
