This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A member of one of Guernsey’s old established families, he had a successful career as "greffier" (Clerk of the Royal Court), a position he inherited from his father in 1768.

He was something of a polymath, with wide interests across the natural sciences and humanities. He compiled the first known list of Guernsey plants, supported by a herbarium which still survives, and was instrumental in bringing Guernsey’s antiquarian riches to the attention of the outside world.

He is known to have inspired his young cossin Frederick Corbin Lukis in the pursuits of archaeology and natural history.

Joshua Gosselin was also an artist and recorded the topography of his native island in a charming eighteenth-century manner.

Work of Joshua Gosselin is in the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery, Candie Gardens in St. Peter Port (Guernsey – Channel Islands.
