Biography:
Henry Pyall (1795 - 1833)
Aquatint engraver of sporting, coaching and railway subjects and topographical views after his contemporaries. He lived and worked in London and ran a publishing company with George Hunt.

Bibl: British Prints Dictionary and Price Guide - Ian Mackenzie.

James POLLARD (1792-1867)
The youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing. In all his work he took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works, such as the present busy London scene, the people are all individuals going about their daily lives, and the coaches, carts and cabs have all been very carefully observed: a true microcosm of London
