Dear Chris - thank you for your comment -
Anthony Devis (1729-1817) was a successful landscape painter, often painting the estates of the landed classes. Arthur Devis (1762-1822) was a portrait painter. Their father was Arthur Devis (1712-1787) also a portrait painter. The Harris Art Gallery Preston own works by the family and published a catalogue on Arthur Devis the younger, it would therefore be worth contacting them for more information www.harrismuseum.org.uk
