Samuel Lane (1780-1859), Portrait painter

Artist associated with 45 portraits
Norfolk-born Lane moved to London where he initially studied under engraver Joseph Farington. In 1800, he enrolled at the Royal Academy schools where he became a pupil of Thomas Lawrence. From around 1802, he was employed by Lawrence as a studio assistant. The two did not appear to have an easy relationship, but Lane remained with Lawrence for several years and when Lawrence died in 1830 Lane completed his unfinished portraits. Lane exhibited over 200 portraits at the Royal Academy between 1804 and 1857. He also exhibited with the Norwich Society of Artists between 1819 and 1829.
