Artist associated with 65 portraits
Edward Luttrell began to study law at New Inn, London, in around 1670, but abandoned this to become a pupil of the crayon and pastel portrait painter Edmund Ashfield. He is credited with expanding the technique of crayon drawing by expanding the colours used and by inventing a method of drawing with crayons on copper plates.
