Artist associated with 1 portrait
Abraham Raimbach was apprenticed to J. Hall, engraver to the king, from 1789 to 1796, and subsequently studied for nine years at the Royal Academy. During these years, he carried out occasional engravings for booksellers. He also painted portraits in miniature that he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1797 to 1805. Having formed a friendship with the artist Sir David Wilkie, in 1812 Raimbach began to engrave some of Wilkie's best pictures. The first of these was the Village Politicians, exhibited at the Paris Exhibition of 1814, for which Raimbach was awarded a gold medal.
