John Ogborne made some of the finest stipple engravings of the late eighteenth century. Working mainly after the designs of Westall, Kauffmann, Smirke and Stothard, Ogborne also worked for John Boydell on his Shakespeare and Milton engravings. During the early nineteenth century, he turned successfully to topographical views in aquatint engraving. In some of his engraved work, his wife, Mary Ogborne, assisted him.
