Charles Joseph Hullmandel

(1789-1850), Lithographic draughtsman and printer

Artist associated with 106 portraits
Born in London of a German father and French mother. He travelled widely in Europe making drawings and paintings of the places he visited. In 1817, he met the inventor of the lithographic process, Senefelder, in Munich; the following year he established a lithographic press at his home in Great Marlborough Street, from where he produced prints until his death. One of the most significant figures in the development of lithography in the first half of the nineteenth century, his treatise The Art of Drawing on Stone (1824) was an essential manual of the art. He refined the lithographic process, developing a method for producing gradations in tones and creating the effect of soft washes of colour.
