Edward Francis Finden (1791-1857), Engraver
Artist associated with 33 portraits
Edward Finden was a line engraver. He worked mostly with his elder brother, William Finden, and their works were extremely popular in the middle of the nineteenth century. The Findens employed many assistants to work on their numerous commissions; they supervised the work of the studio and concentrated on adding final touches to the steel plates to produce the elaborate finish and precision for which their work was known. In the 1820s, William and Edward Finden began to produce the great series of steel engravings for which they are chiefly known. One of their best-known books is The Ports, Harbours, Watering Places and Coast Scenery of Great Britain, which went through many editions.
