Thomas Lewis Atkinson, English (1817 - c.1890)

Born in Salisbury, England, 04 April 1817
Died in England, c. 1889

English engraver. He was active mainly in London, where he was apprenticed for seven years to the eminent engraver Samuel Cousins. Like his teacher, he engraved many plates after the works of John Everett Millais (e.g. the Black Brunswicker, 1860, Port Sunlight, Lady Lever A.G.; declared for publication on 16 June 1864 jointly by Henry Graves & Co. and Moore, McQueen & Co.) and Edwin Landseer (e.g. In Time of War and In Time of Peace, ex-Tate, London, destr.; published in 1864 by Henry Graves & Co. and Thomas Agnew). Francis Grant, William Powell Frith and Franz Xavier Winterhalter are among the other artists whose work he reproduced, but perhaps his best-known plate (untraced), published in 1877 by Thomas McLean, is that after Flora by Valentine W. Bromley (1848-72). One of his last plates was engraved in collaboration with Cousins: a reproduction in mezzotint of Millais's Perfect Bliss (untraced), declared by Thomas McLean on 30 March 1886.
