Painter of Pedigree

Thomas Weaver of Shrewsbury: Animal Artist of the Agricultural Revolution

Lawrence Trevelyan Weaver

Thomas Weaver (1774–1844) was an accomplished artist working during the late 18th century, when innovative methods of breeding produced bigger and better domestic animals. Weaver was among a small group of artists who pioneered the painting of owners’ and breeders’ prize sheep, cattle, hounds and thoroughbred stallions. Written by a descendant, with access to Weaver’s papers and diaries, this book tells the story and reproduces the paintings of a successful animal artist during the Agricultural Revolution.
