John Scott (1774 - 1827) was an English engraver and father of John R. Scott, also an engraver. Specialising in animals, his work was published in the Sporting Magazine and similar publications. Born in Newcastle, he worked in London with his brother William as a dealer and prime agent for Alexander Sutherland. His career came to an end in 1821 after he suffered a stroke.
Philip Reinagle (1749 - 1833) was a British artist. Trained by the painter Allan Ramsay he began his career as a portrait painter, then later specialised in animal and sporting pictures, botanical subjects and landscapes. He became a Royal Academician in 1812.
