Peter De Wint (1784-1849) was an English landscape painter whose father was of Dutch extraction. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1807, and the following year at the Gallery of Associated Artists in Watercolours. He was elected an Associate of the Old Watercolour Society in 1810, and was made a full member the following year. In 1812, he became a member of the Society of Painters in Watercolours, where he exhibited for many years, as well as at the Academy.
De Wint's life was devoted to art; he painted admirably in oils, and he ranks as one of the chief English watercolourists. "No artist", asserted Alfred William Rich, "ever came nearer painting a perfect picture than did Peter de Wint."
