Ackerman was the epitome of the Regency art-world entrepreneur: his business 'The Repository of Arts' combined the functions of shop, gallery, circulating library and social centre. He was also a keen promoter of technological inventions. He is show here with an early gas lamp that alludes to his pioneering introduction of gas lighting in his place of work.
