Artist Bio: Charles Catton [1728 1790], sometimes referred to as Charles Catton the elder, was born in Norwich, one of a family of thirty-five children, was apprenticed to a London coach-painter, and found time also for some study in the St. Martin's Lane academy. He is chiefly known as a landscape and animal painter, he is also known for his heraldry. Somewhat early in life, he became a member of the Society of Artists and exhibited various pictures in its galleries from 1760 to 1764. He shone in his own profession and received the appointment of coach-painter to George III, and was one of the founding members of the Royal Academy. Some years before his death he gave up the practice of art; he died at his house in Judd Place, New Road, London, on the 28th August 1798, and was buried in Bloomsbury cemetery.
