John Augustus Atkinson was a visual artist who lived between 1775 and 1830. He was known for his watercolors and copper engravings, which made him world famous. Even today, his pictures are still very popular and are wonderful decorations for people with an affinity for art and culture.

Atkinson was born in beautiful London. He was related to James Walker, an artist who worked for Catherine the Great in St. Petersburg. He went to him during his youth to learn from him and study the fine arts. He was soon motivated and stopped for his studies by Catherine the Great herself and her son, Paul I, who recognized his potential early on. Atkinson's work at that time was heavily influenced by the great Russian artists who exhibited in St. Petersburg's art galleries. In addition, the tsar family turned to the then young painter to commission large-format pictures that showed key scenes of Russian history. An offer that the British painter gladly accepted and thus built a reputation for.

The later experienced painter later returned to his mother country England, where he published one of his most famous works, which was still fully influenced by his time in St. Petersburg. It is the work "A Picturesque Representation of the Manners, Customs, and Amusements of the Russians, in 100 plates", a treatise that contains illustrations and representations of Russian life. During his time in England Atkinson started to produce watercolors, which he did very well. So excellent that in 1808 the Society of Painters in Water Colors decided to take him on and make him a member.

During the Napoleonic Wars Atkinson was also busy painting intensively and artistically processing it. Works of art that had nautical themes on the subject dominated his creative work at that time. At the time, he was drawing numerous battle scenes, most notably the Battle of Waterloo. His painter colleague John Burnet, who comes from Scotland, worked on this artwork. Works such as Ships of the Reign of King Edward IV from 1812 and British Sailors Boarding a Man of War from 1815 can be seen today in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and in the National Maritime Museum in London and are still very popular. They provide an insight into Britain's historic moments, which are always closely linked to seafaring. Atkinson enjoyed great success as a visual artist and also exhibited at the Royal Academy Exhibition, the last time in 1829. © Meisterdrucke
