Biography

Based largely in NW England, Towne progressed to painting through decorating coaches. Moving to London at the end of the century, he became friendly with George Morland, but his greater success came in the north-west, where he returned in 1810. He painted portraits, pictures of animals, and landscapes and achieved a modest success into the early 1830s, but was poor by 1840, the year of his death.
