Description

Oil painting on canvas by Joseph Jewell. It is uncertain whether this is a portrait of Luke Howard or a self-portrait by Joseph Jewell. The painting was acquired with an archive relating to Luke Howard (1772-1864), a pioneer in meteorology. In 1820, Howard published the important 'Climate of London', which contained the currently used clasification of clouds.
