Shepherd, Thomas Hosmer
Biography
Younger brother of George Sidney Shepherd, Thomas Hosmer spent most of his career as a watercolour painter and engraver of cityscapes in London. He did, however, carry out sketching tours of northern England and continental Europe. Unlike George Sidney he concentrated on topical views rather than antiquarian themes and his best known Scottish work consists of 38 drawings made for 'Modern Athens Displayed, or Edinburgh in the Nineteenth Century', published in 1829. In addition there are four major watercolours and over 100 small sketches, engraved by a variety of engravers, including W H Lizars.
His main source of income was work for the 'Illustrated London News' and for his patron Frederick Crace, whose collection is now held by the British Museum. Thomas Hosmer died in Islington in 1864.
