    Collet studied at the St Martin’s Lane Academy and was a pupil of the landscape artist George Lambert. He was much influenced by Hogarth. He exhibited at the Free Society of Artists from 1761 until his death and a number of his drawings were engraved. His work is characterised by a thick pen and ink outline. Another version of this watercolour was sold as part of the Cornish Torbock collection at Sotheby’s on 14th April 1994, lot 165.
