Frederick Christian Lewis

English landscape painter and engraver (1779 - 1856)

Frederick Christian Lewis came from an English family of painters and printmakers. He was a student of the engraver Joseph Constantine Stadler (active between 1780 - 1812) and studied at the Royal Academy Schools, London.

Lewis reproduced a wide range of sporting subjects, landscapes, portraits and topographical views after old master drawings and the work of his contemporaries including Thomas Girtin (1775 - 1802) and Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 - 1851).

He regularly exhibited his own oil and watercolour landscape paintings at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the Society of British Artists and the Old Water-Colour Society between 1802 and 1853. His paintings were often well received by critics, but his engravings were much more popular.
