Lemuel Abbott was a British painter based in London, primarily known for portraits of male sitters, many of them naval officers, notably a portrait of the naval hero Lord Horatio Nelson that hangs in 10 Downing Street. He exhibited portraits at the Royal Academy of Arts in 1788, 1789, 1798, and 1800.
William Henderson was a British mezzotint engraver. The British Museum has over a dozen portrait and genre engravings from the 1890s to 1920s by Henderson in its collection.
