George Clint (1770-1854), Portrait painter and engraver

Sitter in 4 portraits
Artist associated with 77 portraits
Clint began as a miniature painter in Leadenhall Street, London. He learned the technique of mezzotint engraving from Edward Bell, the nephew of John Bell the publisher. Clint first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1802, but it was not until the 1820s that his career began to flourish. He established a reputation as a painter of theatrical subjects. Clint practised as a portrait painter throughout his career, but it is for his theatrical scene paintings that he is best remembered. George Clint was the father of Scipio Clint, medallist, and Alfred Clint, etcher and marine painter.
