Peter De Wint Biography
The Fourth son of a Dutch-American father & a Scotish Mother, he took his first lessons from the Stafford drawing master B. Rogers, & in 1802 he was apprenticed to J.R. Smith. A fellow apprentice was his friend & future brother-in-law W. Hilton, who introduced him to Lincolnshire, which became his favourite sketching ground.
