John Cousen

John Cousen, a landscape engraver, was born at Bradford in Yorkshire in 1804, and was articled to John Scott, the animal engraver. His larger works after Turner, Stanfield, and others are of great excellence, but his exquisite taste is best displayed in his smaller plates after Turner, especially those in the 'Rivers of France,' which are full of poetic feeling. He died at South Norwood in 1880, but had retired from the practice of his art some sixteen years before, in consequence of ill-health. --from Wikipedia
