Framed Thornton Prints

In 1797, Robert John Thornton (Born in 1768) inherited the family fortune and decided to leave his medical practice so as to pursue his lifelong passion for botany. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge and became a botanical writer and physician. His botanical books were the finest that had been heretofore published on the continent. He was inspired by the lectures on botany by Thomas Martyn and the works of Linnaeus so much so that he decided to switch from the church to medicine. He had the great good fortune to have worked for and with some of the most discriminating and gifted academicians and artists of his own unique brand of conceptual illustrations for international clients. He was employed by Guy's Hospital in London, where he later became a lecturer in medical botany. Determined to surpass the French in printing artistry and the Germans in scholarship, John Thornton planned a book of literary and philosophic distinction, illustrated by some of the Britain’s best painters. He relaxed by indulging in producing this book, and this proved to be the most creatively rewarding aspect of his career. His art was produced in a variety of finishing options including framed Robert John Thornton art which were very popular because they came ready to hang with all the accessories – they are popular to date. Thornton settled and practiced in London after spending some time abroad. He had decided to publish 70 folio-size plates but lack of interest from the general public made the scheme to fail.
