Kerrich, the cleric and antiquary was a talented draughtsman who had his childhood drawings approved by William Hogarth. Kerrich won a travelling scholarship to Italy where he drew perhaps under the influence of Fuseli or artists in his circle. Later in life he wrote on gothic architecture, produced illustrations for Gough's Sepulchral Monuments and became one of the earliest lithographers. He left his fine collection of early royal portraits to the Society of Antiquaries and his other collections passed to the British Museum and the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge University where he had been a librarian.
