Paul Sandby

published 1763

RCIN 661138

Paul Sandby and his brother Thomas were among the founders of both the Society of Artists of Great Britain in 1761 and the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768. A desire to raise the status of artists is implicit here, with Sandby elegantly dressed and leaning out of the window of a well-appointed house to draw from nature.
