Born in London in 1776, George Panormo was the third son of Vincenzo. His earliest work dates from around 1812, when he was living in Monmouth Street, Covent Garden. Around 1837-40 he was working in Liverpool for the Banks brothers, James and Henry, but in 1841 he was re-established in London in New Compton Street. From 1848 he was working with his younger brother Louis in Bloomsbury, and died in 1852. His work is generally less well-appreciated than that of other members of the family, it is nevertheless of very high quality and covers a range of styles, confidently imitating various classical masters. His most common varnish is a clear golden-yellow, but other preparations are found.
