John Wootton

c. 1682-1764 England/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-John Wootton was born in Snitterfield, Warwickshire, c. 1682. He was a painter of animals, of which most were racing horses he painted at Newmarket. He was a disciple of Jan Wyck and influenced by the works of Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin. James Seymour and Peter Tillemans were his contemporaries. Subsequent British painters took inspiration from his landscapes. Unfortunately, Wootton's sight failed in the latter part of his life. He died in London in 1764.
