Morison, Douglas (1814 -1847), watercolour painter and lithographer, was born at Tottenham, in Middlesex, on 22 August 1814, the son of Richard Morison, a doctor, of Datchet, near Windsor. He was a pupil and friend of the sporting artist Frederick Tayler. Charles Joseph Hullmandel (1789 - 1850) was born in London, where he maintained a lithographic establishment on Great Marlborough Street from about 1819 until his death. During the first half of the 19th century Hullmandel became one of the most important figures in the development of British lithography, and his name appears on the imprints of thousands of lithographic prints. He developed a method for reproducing gradations in tones and for creating the effect of soft colour washes which enabled the printed reproduction of Romantic landscape paintings of the type made popular in England by J. M. W. Turner. Hullmandel's essay The Art of Drawing on Stone (1824) was an important handbook of lithography. In 1843 he went into partnership with Joseph Fowell Walton, a cousin of the landscape artist and lithographer W. L. Walton, the firm then becoming known as Hullmandel & Walton.(Source: Wikipedia)
