Albin Robert Burt (1784-1842) is an interesting artist in as much as his subjects are often commissions from the lower orders of society, usually shown in their professional garb. Burt started his career as an engraver working under Robert Thew and Benjamin Smith. He later turned to making portraits such as this, exhibiting at the Royal Academy in 1830.
