Anthony Cardon

1772 – 1813

Anthony Cardon, born in Flanders, moved to London as a twenty year old and attended the Royal Academy schools. Setting up as an engraver and publisher of prints, he built a successful business and became a leading exponent of the medium of stipple engraving, in particular. Cardon engraved many portraits, including a number after the drawings of Richard Cosway. The National Portrait Gallery, London, has many examples of his work.
