Excerpt from Bryan's Dictionary of Painters and Engravers, Vol. 5

Sanders, john. It is not possible to state with absolute certainty who this artist was, but he is believed to have been the son of a pastel painter named John Saunders, who lived at Stourbridge, and to have adopted a different spelling for his name to that used by his father. He appears at the Royal Academy Schools in 1769, winning a silver medal in the following year, and in 1771 sending in pictures for exhibition. Even those that are accredited to him may possibly have been the work of his father, as in 1775 one edition of the catalogue of the Royal Academy describes him as John Saunders, Junior. In 1778 he was living at Norwich, and in 1790 at Bath, and during those years his name was certainly Spelt without the u. Fanny Burney refers to his portrait of Princess Charlotte of Wales, and in the houses about Bath there are several clever portraits attributed to his hand. If he was the son of John Saunders he was probably born in 1750; he certainly died near Bristol in 1825, and he left one son.

Sanders, john, painter, practised in London, and exhibited at the Academy a picture of St. Sebastian in 1772, and a Jael and Sisera' in 1778.

Sanders, john, probably the son of the last named John Sanders, exhibited at the Academy from 1775 till 1820.

Sanders, john arnold. This man was the son of John Sanders, and was born at Bath about 1801. He executed a few clever water-colours of landscapes, and some admirable portraits in pencil, tinted with colour. He also tried miniature paint ing, but when about thirty years old got into some difficulty with regard to one of his pupils, emigrated to Canada, and was afterwards lost sight of.
