Edward Fisher (1722-before 1782), Mezzotint engraver

Artist associated with 93 portraits
Dublin-born Fisher moved to London in 1758 and worked in the studio of engraver James McArdell. The following year he was selected by Sir Joshua Reynolds to produce a mezzotint engraving of his portrait of Augustus Keppel. Fisher went on to engrave nearly thirty more of Reynold's paintings. A member of the Society of Artists, throughout the 1760s and 1770s Fisher regularly exhibited engraved portraits after a number of painters.
