Richard Dighton (1795-1880) was best known for his numerous portraits of City and West End characters. Apprenticed in his father Robert Dighton's studio, he continued the production of full-length, profile etchings. He began his extensive series of City and West End characters in 1817, publishing over one hundred etchings during the next ten years. In 1828, Dighton ceased producing etchings and moved to the provinces - Cheltenham and Worcester - where he lived and worked over the next twenty years, before returning to London.
