William Henry Bartlett was an artist renowned for his engravings for sale in London during the early to mid 1800s. His was apprenticed to an architect, and he studied drawings and created sketches of various ruined buildings. These initial sketches sparked his interest in capturing landscapes, leading him to start doing watercolor work in 1825, and later, steel engravings. He embarked on many travels to discover new landscapes and scenery, and Bartlett's prints grew hugely popular.
His most prominent works were of real locations across the world, from scenery seen in places such as the Middle East, Scotland, Europe, and even the U.S. and Canada. His work was featured in many books during his lifetime, and after his death in 1854, and the historical value of W.H. Bartlett prints makes them much respected by collectors.
