Biography   John Hoppner


/ HAHP-ner /    click to hear
John Hoppner was an English portrait painter.

He was born in Whitechapel. His father was of German extraction and his mother was one of the German attendants at the Royal Palace. Hoppner consequently received the patronage of George III, whose regard for him gave rise to unfounded scandal. As a boy, he was a chorister at the Royal Chapel, but showing strong inclination for art, in 1775, he became a student at the Royal Academy. In 1778 he took a silver medal for drawing from life, and in 1782 the Academy's highest award, the gold medal, for historical painting, his subject being King Lear.

He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1780. He preferred landscapes but turned to the more lucrative business of portrait painting.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1639 characters.
