Edward William Lane 1801–1876

Lane, his brother Richard, and his family moved to Ulster Place just south of Regent's Park along Georgian terrace. His discomfort was increased by the culture shock of returning home as he readjusted to English manners and customs. Lane became familiar with the process at the pasha's lithographic press in Bulaq. Though rarely mentioned in histories of lithography, Richard Lane was one of its early masters and was recognized as such by his contemporaries. Richard Lane, who deserves to be much better remembered than he is, would be a great subject for a historian of nineteenth-century British art and society. His talent and productivity are immediately evident in his portraits of Edward.
