1790-1813 - Brompton Road (Knightsbridge)

Print-maker Niccolò [Nicholas] Schiavonetti was born around 1771 in Bassano del Grappo and moved to England in the early 1790s where he joined his brother Luigi. The brothers lived and worked at no. 12 Michael’s Place (now: no. 231 Brompton Road). Here they pursued their engraving careers and entered into print publishing. Niccolò produced a number of outstanding works, including The Last Effort and Fall of Tippoo Sultan (1802: after Henry Singleton); New Mackrel (1795: after Francis Wheatly) for Cries of London, and several military portraits of the Westminster volunteer cavalry. He engraved (and published) Thomas Phillips’s portrait of Joseph Banks (1812). Schiavonetti died in April 1813.
