Henry Thomas Ryall (1811-1867), Engraver

Artist associated with 51 portraits
An eminent nineteenth-century line, stipple and mixed-method engraver, Henry Thomas Ryall was known for his portraits and his sporting, historical and genre subjects. After studying engraving techniques under Samuel William Reynolds, Ryall lived and worked in London. He is best known for the many larger reproductive engravings that he produced, such as Sir George Hayter's Coronation of Queen Victoria (1842), C.R. Leslie's The Christening of the Princess Royal (1849) and Richard Ansdell's The Fight for the Standard (1853). Ryall was appointed historical engraver to the queen, in which capacity he engraved the portraits of many members of the royal family.
