Edward Burch

Edward Burch (1730 - 1814)

Edward Burch is described as a miniature painter and gem-cutter who was elected in 1771 to the Royal Academy. He is featured kneeling down next to the life nude in Johan Zoffany's The Academicians of the Royal Academy, 1772, in the Royal Collection. He was probably in his mid-twenties when he joined the St Martin's Lane Academy, which exerted a lasting influence on him through his studies in the life class, coupled with the anatomy lectures of Dr William Hunter; his fellow artists became lifelong influential friends. In 1760 he exhibited in the first public exhibition of the Society of Artists, by 1769 he resigned from the Society and joined the newly founded Royal Academy of Arts.
