John Raphael Smith was one of the most celebrated engravist of his time and assumed to be the best mezzotint engraver to ever live. He is famous for other mezzotint engravings he did such as "The Slave Trade" on Feb.1, 1791, and was also a skilled painter and well known for his portraits of political figures such as: Frederick Duke of Schomeerg, William Prince of Orange, and Field Marshall Keith.
