John Vanderbank

John Vanderbank

John Vanderbank (9 September, 169423 December, 1739), was an English portrait painter and book illustrator. He was born and died in London, and is buried in Marylebone Church. He was the eldest son of John Vanderbank, a Huguenot tapestry weaver, who was born in Paris.

He studied under Sir Godfrey Kneller at Thornhill's Great Queen Street Academy from 1711 until 1720 when he joined with Louis Cheron to found his own Academy in St. Martin’s Lane. It was noted by George Vertue that “only intemperance prevented him from being the greatest portraitist of his generation”.

Vanderbank’s book illustrations include the portrait of Sir Isaac Newton used in the frontspiece of 1726 edition of" Principia" as well as the 66 plates of the first edition in Spanish of Cervante’s "Don Quixote" published in England (1738). His 1725 portrait of Sir Isaac Newton hangs in the Trinity College, Cambridge.
