Biography

Artist Francis Wheatley (1747-1801) is best known for his paintings that show the bustling crowds of London. Francis Wheatley's earlier paintings of women in bright clothing posed against dark backgrounds were also popular and sold fast. Aside from his paintings, he undertook illustrations for clothing designers, bringing a realistic quality to the materials. Despite his talent, he was deeply in debt, so he escaped to Dublin with the wife of a friend to avoid paying his creditors.

After returning to London, he focused more on conversation pieces and landscapes of popular areas in England. Francis Wheatley prints and paintings primarily belong to the sentimental genre, showing details in expressions and places to convey feeling.
