John Hoppner

(1758-1810), Painter

Sitter in 13 portraits
Artist associated with 214 portraits
Portrait painter. His early success made him appear the natural successor to Sir Joshua Reynolds until the arrival in London in 1787 of Thomas Lawrence. While Hoppner was made portrait painter to the Prince of Wales in 1789, ensuring him extensive patronage in Whig political circles, it was Lawrence who became painter to the King.
