Biography:

Moses Griffith (1747-1819)

Welsh artist, draughtsman, engraver and water colourist. His parents were of humble station, and he received a very elementary education but, being clever with his pencil, he was taken into service by Thomas Pennant in about 1769. Pennant helped him to study drawing and engraving, and Griffiths became his constant companion on his tours and excursions, making the drawings and engravings for Pennant’s numerous works.
