Title: British & American man o war ships in Harbour 

ANDERSON, WILLIAM (1757–1837), marine painter, exhibited at the Academy

between 1787 and 1814. He was born in Scotland and brought up as a shipwright.

His works, usually of small size, show a seaman's knowledge,

and his drawing is correct and careful in all that concerns shipping.

His water-colour paintings are pleasing, and have an interest for

those concerned in the development of the art, but are not otherwise

noteworthy. He painted on one occasion the interior of Westminster

Abbey, and some landscapes, but his subjects are most often river scenes

‘neatly painted, low and agreeable in colour.’ In the print room at the

British Museum is a large water-colour drawing, dated 1791,

excellently representative of the painter. Five ‘views of the battle of the Nile’

were engraved in aquatint by William Ellis (1800) after drawings by Anderson.

At South Kensington there are two good examples of his work.

His later work shows some advance upon his earlier,

which was rather like tinted drawing than true water-colour painting.
