English landscape painter John Glover was a drawing master in Lichfield from 1794 and an exhibitor at the RA from 1795. He exhibited with the newly established Society of Painters in Watercolours from 1805 to 1817. His paintings were derived from his many sketching trips in the UK and, from 1814, on the Continent. In 1824 he helped establish the Society of British Artists and exhibited there from 1824 to 1829.
