John Rathbone (1750–1807) was a prolific painter of landscapes in oil and watercolour. Between 1785 and 1806 Rathbone exhibited 48 landscapes at the Royal Academy, and two at the Society of Artists.
Maria Catharina Prestel (1747–94) was an engraver, specialising in aquatint. Born in Nuremberg, she married Johann Gottlieb Prestel in 1772 and was a pupil of his. After separating from him, she moved to London in 1786, where she worked for John Boydell.
