Thomas Heaphy

(1775-1835)

Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist associated with 47 portraits
Apprenticed to the engraver R.M. Meadows, and in his spare time he attended a drawing school in Bloomsbury. He first exhibited portraits at the Royal Academy in 1797 then spent a few years working in watercolour before returning to portrait painting. He painted Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold and was appointed portrait painter to the Princess of Wales. The Duke of Wellington invited Heaphy to accompany the British army through the Peninsular campaign. He painted portraits, and on his return he produced his most important work, a large watercolour of the Duke of Wellington giving orders to his staff before a battle, which included portraits of about fifty officers.
