Charles Catton jnr (1756 - 1819)

Catton was an English topographical artist, illustrator and theatrical scene-painter, was born in London, the son of Charles Catton the elder. He received art tuition from his father and also studied at the Royal Academy schools. He travelled extensively through England and Scotland, making sketches, some of which were afterwards engraved and published. He was known as a scene-painter for the theatre, and also as a topographical artist. In 1775, at the Royal Academy, he exhibited a View of London from Blackfriars Bridge, and one of Westminster from Westminster Bridge. In 1804, he emigrated to America and settled in a farm on the River Hudson with his two daughters and a son. There he lived until his death, painting occasionally. He is said to have "acquired wealth"' through his painting. Catton died on 24 April 1819.
