J.R. West (fl. 1824-25)
Besides engraving Thomas
Phillips's portrait of Sir Walter Scott
in 1825, J.R. West engraved two portraits of historical figures
featured in Ivanhoe for Portraits
Illustrative of the Novels, Tales, & Romances
of the Author of Waverley (London: C. Baldwyn, 1824).
There is, however, no reference to West in any of the standard works
on nineteenth-century artists and engravers. The page
be glad to receive any information on his life and career.
See below West's (full-size) engravings of King Richard I and
King John of England which were made from earlier engravings
by George Vertue.
