Artist Bowen (1720-1767)
Emanuel Bowen (1714- 1767 in London) was an English map engraver, who worked for George II of England and Louis XV of France as a geographer. In spite of his royal appointments and apparent prosperity he died in poverty and his son, who carried on the business was no more fortunate and died in a Clerkenwell workhouse in 1790.
