William Daniell (1769-1837) was an English print maker and painter.
His uncle was an artist and Royal Academician. From 1785 to 1794 they travelled in China and India.
He had a rare talent for capturing the spirit of nature and locations. His pictures are full of evocative details.
He was expert at zoography, the description of animals in their natural habitats. It's the most insightful way to portray animals, but harder than illustrating animals alone.
Many of his works are in major museums such as the National Portrait Gallery in London.
