Richard Sebastian Bond (1808-1886) 

A Jersey etcher and lithographer, Edmund Blampied was one of the most eminent artists to come from the Channel Islands, yet he received no formal training in art until he was 16 years old. He was noted mostly for his etchings and drypoints published at the height of the print boom in the 1920s, but was also a caricaturist, cartoonist, book illustrator and artist in oils, watercolours, silhouettes and bronze. In total he made more than 20,000 pictures.
