Hall: Sheridan

John Hall after Sir Joshua Reynolds.

Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

15 x 21 inches.

John Hall (1737-1797) was a line engraver of historical subjects and portraits after his contemporaries. He was well regarded and his talent was officially recognised when he was appointed Historical Engraver to King George III. This print of Sheridan is typical of his work and clearly shows his skill as an extremely competent line engraver.

Richard Sheridan (1751-1816) was an Irish playwright and poet whose plays became some of the most popular of his day. Most famously he wrote The Rivals and A School for Scandal, both of which were staged throughout the latter half of the eighteenth century. He is also well known as the long term owner of London's leading play house, The Theatre Royal in Drury Lane.
