much admired in his time, but is now cliieily remembered as a topo- 
graphical draughtfman. He was a native of Nottingham, where he was 
born in 1725," and he died on the 7th of November, 1809.1" 
John Collet, who alfo has been mentioned in a previous chapter, was 
born in London in 1725, and died there in 1780. Collet is faid to have 
been a pupil of Hogarth, and there is a large amount of Hogarthian cha- 
raeter in all his defigns. Few artiils have been more induiirious and 
produced a greater number of engravings. He worked chiefly for 
Carrington Bowles, in St. Paul's Churchyard, and for Robert Sayers, at 
5 3, Fleet Street. His prints publifhed by Bowles were engraved generally in 
"X" His death is usually placed, but erroneously, in 1732, 
1- Sandby etched landscapes on steel, and in aquatinta, the latter by a method 
peculiarly his own, besides painting in oil and opaque colours. But his fame rests 
mainiy on being the founder of the English school of 7vt1"c'r-rrlour painting, since he 
was the first to show the capability of that material to produce finished pictures, 
and to lead the way to the perfection in effect and colour to whicn that branch of 
an has since attained.
