    Born in Worcester, Burney came to London in 1776 and studied at the Royal Academy Schools. He exhibited mainly portraits as a young man but from the 1790s he worked almost exclusively as a book illustrator. The present drawings show his talent for designing complicated figure groupings on a small scale.
