These enamel painted panels are by James Pearson (c.1740-1838), the Dublin-born glass painter who worked alongside his wife Eglington Margaret in London. Pearson came to public attention through works shown at the Society of Artists of Great Britain in exhibitions held between 1775–77 and gained several notable patrons. His most famous work is perhaps the spectacular Brazen Serpent in the Wilderness
, after a drawing by John Hamilton Mortimer (1741-1779), and now installed in the east window of Salisbury Cathedral. Other examples of his work can be found in the in the Victoria and Albert Museum (C.135-1977 and C.134-1977) and the Royal Collection (RCIN 69047).
