Samuel Drummond (1765-1844), Portrait and history painter

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist associated with 55 portraits
Samuel Drummond was apprenticed to the sea service when he was about thirteen, working the Baltic trade routes for six or seven years. He gave up his career on the sea to enrol in the Royal Academy schools in 1791, exhibiting over three hundred works there from that year until his death. Drummond successfully established himself as a portrait painter, achieving some celebrity and becoming known for the speed with which he could render a likeness. He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1808, and thereafter achieved some success in painting naval historical subjects.
