George Engleheart, 1752–1829, English miniature painter. He studied with Sir Joshua Reynolds and made copies in miniature of Reynolds's paintings. Court miniaturist under George III, he competed successfully with the famous Richard Cosway. His nephew John Cox Dillman Engleheart, 1784–1862, was also a noted miniaturist. Examples of both painters' work may be seen in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
