Edward Gibson|1668|1701| Edward Gibson (born 1668 died 1701), portrait-painter, was nephew of William Gibson (1644–1702), from whom he received instruction in painting. He commenced painting portraits in oil, but subsequently found more employment in crayons. In this line he showed some genius, and was making great progress when he died in January 1701 in his thirty-third year. He lived in Catherine Street, Strand, and was buried at Richmond, Surrey. He drew his own portrait in crayons twice, in one dressed as a Chinese, in the other as a quaker. One portrait of himself, dated 1690, was at Tart Hall, and another, dated 1696, was formerly in Sir Thomas Lawrence's collection, and was sold at Christie's on 27 March 1866.[DNB 1][DNB 2][DNB 3][DNB 4][1]
