was an English artist who spent most of his life in India and China. His older brother committed large-scale fraud and fled to Spain. This tarnished Chinnery’s reputation, and therefore he went to Ireland, where he could paint in peace. At the beginning of the 19th century, he returned to London with his wife and two children, but in less than a year he travelled away aboard the Gilwell to Calcutta. There, he became a Freemason. This membership also brought him certain advantages for his artistic life. In India, he painted the families of British colonists and in China, he focused on portraits businessmen and also the simple life - Chinese Players
. In 1846, he visited Hong Kong, but there he suffered from poor health. He died six years later. A collection of his Classical
paintings can be found in London in the Victoria and Albert Museum, Peabody Essex Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art and others.
