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.
Sawrey Gilpin (1733 - 1807) was an English animal painter, illustrator, and etcher who specialised in paintings of horses and dogs. He was made a Royal Academician in 1797.
