Artist associated with 60 portraits
Joseph Collyer the Younger studied under the engraver Anthony Walker, who worked for printmaker John Boydell in the early 1760s. Collyer enrolled at the Royal Academy schools in 1771, after which he too worked for Boydell. He exhibited at the Society of Artists between 1780 and 1790, and intermittently at the Royal Academy from 1789 until 1822. Collyer was made an associate of the Royal Academy in 1786, and in the same year was appointed portrait engraver to Queen Charlotte.
