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 editor would 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.
