Lowes Cato Dickinson (1819 - 1908) was a portraitist, sporting painter and lithographer. Born in London, he visited Italy and Sicily between 1850 and 1853. He taught drawing with John Ruskin and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Robert William Buss (1804 - 1875) was a British painter, designer and illustrator. Active in London, he studied with George Clint, and exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution and Royal Society of British Artists. He painted theatrical portraits before turning to historical and conversation pieces.

John Vanderbank (1694 - 1739) was a British painter and draughtsman. The son of John Vanderbank, a Soho tapestry-weaver, he ran a drawing academy with Cheron from 1720.

Charles Joseph Hullmandel (1789 - 1850) was an English printer and publisher. Born in London to French parents, Hullmandel initially trained as an artist. In 1817 in Munich, he met the inventor of lithography Alois Senefelder (1771 - 1834). The following year Hullmandel opened his own press in London. A major figure in the advancement of lithography, he was responsible for numerous technical developments including lithotint and colour printing. From 1845, Hullmandel worked in partnership with Joseph Fowell Walton. The imprint Hullmandel & Walton continued to be used until the 1860s.
