Capt. J. M. Carter selective views 1840's

J. M. Carter was a Captain of the Royal Regiment. However, he also an amateur artist who exhibited oil paintings at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Society of British Artists.

When he exhibited at the Academy in 1842, he was probably serving overseas, because his work was sent ‘c/o Mr. F. Grant’ (Francis Grant, later President of the Royal Academy). Carter and Grant may have been friends; Carter had exhibited a view of Grant’s home in Regent’s-park’ (presumably a drawing) at the Academy in 1839.

Carter was in Gibraltar by 1844 and two years later published his ‘Select Views of the Rock and Fortress of Gibraltar’, including 14 plates.

By 1847, however, he was already living in Monmouth, in Wales.
