Charles Catton
Charles Catton (1728–1798) was an English painter of coaches, landscapes, animals and figures. Born in Norwich as one of possibly 35 children of his twice-married father, Catton was apprenticed to a London coach painter or carpenter by the name of Maxwell, and studied drawing at the St. Martin's Lane Academy. He became a member of the Society of Artists, and exhibited various pictures in its galleries in 1760–1764. He was a founding member of the Royal Academy and, in 1784, was master of the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers. He exhibited at the Academy from its foundation until the year of his death.

This picture is a self-portrait of Catton, dating from 1769.Painting: Charles Catton
