Peter Rouw was an Anglo-Dutch artist, sculptor and engraver who worked for Matthew Boulton during his lifetime and for his Soho business in Handsworth after his death. Famous for his fine wax and bronze portraits and medallions, he first exhibited at the Royal Academy, London in 1794 and continued to exhibit right up to his death in 1852. Numerous comparable examples of his work can be found in the National Portrait Gallery, London, including James Watt, William Pitt and Charlotte Augusta Matilda, Princess Royal.
