John Harris (circa 1792-1873)

Artist associated with 4 portraits
John Harris, artist and facsimilist, was the son of watercolour painter John Harris (1767-1832). Harris studied at the Royal Academy where he specialised in miniatures. He exhibited occasionally between 1810 and 1834. Harris worked for Whittaker, a printer and bookbinder, from 1815 until about 1820. In 1820 he began his long association with the British Museum where he produced facsimiles of missing pages from antiquarian books, the work for which he is best remembered.
