Thomas Sandby (1721-1798) was a self-taught draftsman who, with his brother Paul took up positions in the military drawing department at the Tower of London. Thomas was sent first to the Battle of Dettingen and then to Culloden as draughtsman to the Duke of Cumberland. In 1747, under the Duke, he was appointed Deputy Ranger of Windsor Great Park to which he devoted considerable energy in improvements. He was also involved in the London art world and with his brother he was one of the founder members of the Royal Academy in 1768. He was elected their first professor of architecture and later architect of the King's works. In reality, he built few buildings and was more respected for his architectural theory.
