Name of creator
Sir Nathaniel Dance-Holland, 1st Baronet RA (8 May 1735 – 15 October 1811) was a notable English portrait painter and later a politician. Third son of architect George Dance the Elder, Dance (he added the 'Holland' suffix later in life) studied art under Francis Hayman, and like many contemporaries also studied in Italy. One of his best-known portraits was painted soon after his return to England—Captain James Cook (1766, Nat. Maritime Mus., London).
