EpithetArtist and draughtsman
ActivityJohn Claude Nattes was perhaps Irish and was probably born in 1765. He is thought to have been a pupil of Henry Primrose Deane, the Irish landscape painter. Nattes became a topographical draughtsman, and was an early user of watercolour. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1782 to 1804, when he helped to found the ‘Old’ Society of Painters in Water-Colours. Three years later he was forced to leave the society for allegedly displaying paintings that were not his own. He returned to exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1814. He died in London in 1822.
