In fact, all of the prints you have posted were done by other artists and engravers. The only one actually painted by Thornton himself is the Group of Roses.

This painting was not done by Robert John Thornton. He was just the publisher. The painting was done by Peter Charles Henderson, and the etching for printing was done by Joseph Constantine Stadler. The image was etched using aquatint, stipple and line engraving, and colored by hand afterwards. No 2 plates are exactly the same.
