James Scott (circa 1809-circa 1889), Engraver

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist associated with 132 portraits
One of the finest engravers of the mid and late nineteenth century, James Scott was equally talented in the fields of portraiture, historical, sporting and genre subjects. He was highly regarded both for his mezzotints and for his mixed method engravings. Scott had a long and distinguished career, first coming to prominence with his portrait of the Duke of Wellington published in 1837. During the next fifty years, he engraved large designs after the works of such contemporary painters as Daniel Maclise, Landseer, J. G. Brown and George Henry Boughton.
