Hannah Humphrey was the sister of engraver William Humphrey. She began to publish prints in the 1770s and she established a print shop in London in around 1779, from where she initially sold history and portrait plates and caricatures. In 1791, the renowned satirist, James Gillray, began to work exclusively for Humphrey, making her London's leading seller of caricature prints. Gillray lived with Humphrey for the next twenty years.
