Francis Danby  ARA   (1793-1861)
The Development of the Art Market in England:
Money as Muse, 1730–1900
Thomas M Bayer  and John R Page

“Bristol landscape painter, born in Ireland. Studied in Dublin Royal Society Schools, and with the landscape painter James O’Connor. Lived in Bristol 1813-1823, then moved to London. Exhibited at the Royal Academy 1821-1860, mostly poetical and imaginary landscapes, especially with the effects of sunset or the early morning. Also exhibited some religious and historical subjects. In his later years moved to Exmouth, where he concentrated chiefly on mythological subjects. Some of his large and dramatic pictures were painted in emulation of the work of John Martin. Danby was never made a full RA, which was a great disappointment to him, and led to public criticism of the academy election procedures.”
