John Skinner Prout

English watercolour painter (1806 - 1987) and nephew of Samuel Prout (1783 - !852)

In his early years Prout moved to Bristol and produced topographical watercolours and architectural lithographs.

By 1840 he had moved to Australia where he shone as a painter, printmaker, teacher, and promoter of the fine arts, and in 1843 moved to Hobart, Tasmania.

Prout was elected associate and member of the New Society of Painters in Water Colours in 1849, and he lived off Australian subject matter for a number of years.
