Lot Essay

Very little is known of the marine painter Samuel Atkins. In 1788 when living off The Strand, London, he advertised: 'Marine Drawing taught in an easy, pleasing and expeditious manner'. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1787 and 1808, and was at sea from 1796 to 1804, visiting the China Coast.
