1731, Jun1791, Jun 12
an English antiquary, draughtsman, and lexicographer. Grose had early on shown a keen interest in drawing, having attempted sketches of medieval buildings as far back as 1749, and having taken formal instruction at a drawing school in the mid-1750s. He was not a particularly gifted draughtsman but he mixed in the London artistic milieu and began to exhibit, first at the Society of Artists in 1767–8 and then at the Royal Academy. In 1772, he published the first part of The Antiquities of England and Wales, a work which he unashamedly aimed at the popular market.
