REPTON, HUMPHRY

(fl. c. 1783)

Amateur

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He came over to Ireland with Lord Northington, Lord Lieutenant, in 1783, and became private secretary to William Windham, Chief Secretary. He was a clever amateur draughtsman, and did an excellent portrait of Mrs. Siddons, in the "Grecian Daughter." "The Car-load of Terror," a party on a jaunting-car terrified at the approach of an enraged bull, was engraved and published by William Allen in 1783, who also engraved the "Mrs. Siddons."
