Artist Biography:
James Gillray 1756-1815
Important draughtsman, etcher, aquatint and stipple engraver of caricatures mainly after his own designs, but also after sketches by amateurs.

He was born in Chelsea and after an apprenticeship to a lettering engraver, he studied drawing at the RA Schools and learnt stipple engraving from W.W. Ryland and F. Bartalozzi. He produced serious in this medium after his own designs, and after paintings by J. Northcote, while establishing his reputation as a caricaturist.

His earliest political satires date from 1780 and by the end of 1791 all of his caricature were published by Mrs. Hannah Humphrey with whom he lived for the rest of his life.

His last print appeared in 1811, by which time he had become insane. He also produced one early lithograph 'A Musical Family'.
