Biography   Jacob More


Jacob More (1740-1793) was a British landscape painter, who was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He studied landscape and decorative painting with James Norie's firm and took the paintings of Gaspard Dughet and Claude Lorrain as his models.

By 1773 More had settled in Italy, and spent the rest of his life there, moving to Rome in 1791; however, he exhibited Italian landscapes at the Royal Academy* in London in the 1780s.

In 1787 he was visited by Goethe, who considered his work 'admirably thought out'.

In Italy he rivaled Jacob Philipp Hackert; and he befriended Allan Ramsay (1713-1784). In Rome he enjoyed a high reputation, and was commissioned to design a garden for the Villa Borghese in the British landscape style.
