E.E.Leggatt, formerly with Agnews, set up his gallery at 62 Cheapside, London. Later trading as Leggatt Bros & Leggatt Galleres, the buisness, which latterly traded from St James's Street, closed in about 2000.

Frank Paton, 1856 - 1909 was a genre and animal painter. Exhibited at the principal London galleries from 1872, frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy.

Frank Paton was born at Gravesend in Kent, and spent most of his working life between London and Kent. He established himself as an animal and genre painter, and his paintings are characterised by both their great attention to detail and their humorous content.

Many of Frank Paton's paintings were subsequently engraved and amongst these engravings were a series of etchings surrounded by humorous vignettes, illustrating sporting or social preoccupations. Many of his animal portraits were also engraved.
