British Equestrian Artists: John Wootton 1678/82/83?-1764

The date of Wootton’s birth is debatable but 1683 is most likely. He is thought to have been born in Snitterfield, Warwickshire. He studied under Jan Wyck and possibly Siberechts, as a watercolour is recorded signed by both Wootton and Siberechts. As Siberechts was at least fifty years older it would seem likely that it was a student/master collaboration.
