Sawrey Gilpin

1733-1807 England/Animals

 

Brief Biography-Sawrey Gilpin was a painter of animals, born in Carlisle, England, in 1733. He was the brother of the Reverend William Gilpin, illustrator, writer, and teacher. Gilpin studied under Samuel Scot, the marine artist but developed a preference for painting horses. After viewing his work, the Duke of Cumberland engaged him to paint racehorses. George Barret and Johan Zoffany occasionally assisted him with landscapes for inserting animals. In 1797 he was elected Royal Academician. He died in London in 1807. Sawrey's son, William Sawrey Gilpin, was a watercolourist and drawing master at the Royal Military College in Marlow.
