Who is John Donowell?

John Donowell was a little-known, 18th-century British architect and engraver, most notable for his architectural work at West Wycombe Park in Buckinghamshire, where he appears to have been influenced by the works of Colen Campbell. He is considered to be the equivalent of Thomas Sandby and Thomas Malton as one of the principal architect-draughtsmen in the third quarter of the 18th century.

He drew a number of topographical drawings, mostly views of London. His work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in the 1770s and 1780s, and also published as prints during this period.
