François Vivares (1709-1782) was a French landscape-engraver and publisher. He moved to London in 1727 and his earliest dated print is 1738. Vivares had a very high reputation in France, where he was regarded as one of the greatest landscape engravers, and key teacher of the British school of line-engraving.
James Caldwall (1739-1822) was an engraver who studied under John Keyse Sherwin. Known mainly for his portraits, although he also engraved genre and military pictures, he used a combined technique of engraving and etching. Between 1768 and 1780, Caldwall exhibited twenty-nine works at the Free Society of Artists and one at the Society of Artists.
