John Heaviside Clark (c.1771–1836) was a Scottish aquatint engraver and painter of seascapes and landscapes. He was sometimes known as Waterloo Clark, because of the sketches he made on the field directly after the Battle of Waterloo.
Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was the author of A practical essay on the art of Colouring and Painting Landscapes, with illustrations, published in 1807, and A practical Illustration of Gilpin's Day, with thirty colour plates, based on monochrome studies representing different times of day by William Gilpin, in 1824. He died in Edinburgh in 1836.
Henry Thomas Alken, English (1785 - 1851). A keen huntsman, Henry Alken painted what he loved best: hunting and coaching scenes. The most famous of the Alken family of painters, Henry was born in London in 1785. When viewing his paintings, it is easy to see how they reflect his true knowledge of hunting. Whether during the hunt or after a much-deserved victory, Alken brings the excitement and vigor of this age-old sport to life on canvas. He was a prolific artist who was quite well known in his day, and worked up until the end of his life in 1851.
