Biography:

Sir David Wilkie (1785-1841)

His main base was in London, but he died and was buried at sea, off Gibraltar, on returning from his first trip to the Middle East. He was sometimes known as the “people’s painter”.  He was Principal Painter in Ordinary to King William IV and Queen Victoria.
