Artist associated with 67 portraits
Flemish-born Cardon moved to London in 1792 and enrolled at the Royal Academy schools, after which he established a successful engraving and print publishing practice for himself.

He engraved many portraits, including after Richard Cosway's portrait drawings, as well as historical engravings and illustrations for various publications.
