Rowlandson was a London born artist and caricutarist, educated at the school of Dr Barvis in Soho Square, then “an academy of some celebrity,” According to his obituary of 22 April 1827 in The Gentlemen’s Magazine, Rowlandson was sent to Paris at the age of 16 (1772), and spent two years studying in a “drawing academy.  there. In Paris he studied drawing “the human figure” and continued developing his youthful skill in caricature. It was on his return to London that he took classes at the Royal Academy, then based at Somerset House. Rowlandson spent six years studying at the Royal Academy, but about a third of this time was spent in Paris. He was to become one of the most famous of the English caricutarists along side James Gilray.
