Tracings by William Daniell, circa 1802-14, of drawings by George Dance


12 Portraits in set

The tracings were made by the engraver William Daniell as part of a project to publish a collection of portraits sketched from life by George Dance. The tracings appeared as soft-ground etchings from 1802 in 12 monthly parts, finally bound in two folio volumes and published in 1814. The Gallery selected those sitters not represented in the Gallery's collection by drawings or engravings.
