Some Interesting Information about the Illustrators W. H. Bartlett and J. D. Harding
WILLIAM HENRY BARTLETT (1809-1854) was a topographical illustrator who was articled to John Britton. He travelled in 1830, visiting Syria, Egypt, Palestine and America. He died on this voyage around the world at sea at the tender age of 45 years.
JAMES DUFFIELD HARDING (1797-1863) Born in Deptford (London, England) Harding was a topographer, teacher, lithographer and water colourist. He studied with the engraver Charles Pye and Samuel Prout. Harding preferred drawing to engraving and worked as a landscape artist from an early age, exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1810. He worked for Hullmandel producing lithographic folios from the works of Stanfield, Roberts and Bonington. In the 1820s, 30s and 40s he travelled extensively in Europe and produced books of his travels as well as copy-books for amateur artists. His drawing master John Ruskin regarded Harding's talent in high esteem. Much of Harding's watercolours and pencil sketches which were prepared for his books occur frequently on the market.
