About

Hand colored restrike engraving of original painting by Robert William Buss. Image size: 15.5 x 19.5 inches; sheet size: 21.5 x 24.75 inches. Born in Aldersgate, London, 1804, Buss served an apprenticeship with his father, a master engraver and enameler. The young Buss studied painting under George Clint, a watercolour and portrait painter. At the start of his career Buss specialised in painting theatrical portraits, many of the leading British actors of his day. In 1837 he was commissioned by Chapman and Hall, Charles Dickens' publishers, to provide two illustrations for The Pickwick Papers. Buss prepared a dozen or so preliminary sketches for the novel, that time in its second of twenty instalments. Five of these sketches are in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York. Between 1826 and 1859 he painted various historical and humorous subjects and exhibited a total of 112 pictures: twenty-five at the Royal Academy, twenty at the British Institution, forty-five at the Suffolk Street gallery of the Society of British Artists, seven at the New Watercolour Society, and fifteen in other places.
