Born in 1775, he was viewed as a controversial figure in the world of English Romantic art in his lifetime being a significant proponent of the importance of landscape painting over its rival ‘history’ painting.  

Around the turn of the years 1824-25 he agreed with the print-publisher Charles Heath to produce an ambitious series of drawings and watercolours after which engravings would be issued under the title Picturesque Views in England and Wales.
