George White

(circa 1684-1732), Engraver

Artist associated with 120 portraits
George White was the son of draughtsman and engraver Robert White and trained with his father until his death in 1703. In 1712, he began working in mezzotint, achieving much greater success with this method than he had had as an engraver. In total he produced about sixty mezzotints, many of which he published himself.
