Benjamin Vandergucht

Born: 1752
Died: 16 September 1794
Royal Academy student from: 1769 to:
Painter and picture dealer, in London. Son of engraver, draughtsman and art dealer Gerard van der Gucht (1696 or 97 - 1776).

Most authorities give his year of birth as 1753 on the basis of his self-portrait signed and dated 1780 giving his age as 27 [Coll.: Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas]. However in 'The Life and Works of Benjamin Vandergucht (1752-1794)' by Stephen Benson (privately published 2012) it states that he was baptised at St George's Bloomsbury on 11th October 1752.
