  • Daniel Thomas Egerton (1797 – 1842), fue un paisajista británico. Egerton fue uno de los miembros originales de la Sociedad de Artistas británicos, donde exhibió sus obras durante los años 1824 a 1829, y de 1838 a 1840. Pasó la parte final de su vida en México, y publicó Egerton's Views in Mexico, una carpeta de litografías descritas en el subtítulo como "Serie de doce platos coloridos ejecutados por sí mismo de sus dibujos originales, acompañados con una corta descripción". Después de abandonar a su familia en Inglaterra, Egerton regresó a México en 1841 con Alice Edwards, la hija adolescente de otro pintor británico. En 1842, él y su esposa embarazada fueron asesinados en el pueblo de Tacubaya (en la Ciudad de México), donde alquilaban una casa. Egerton solía llevar grandes cantidades de dinero y ambos llevaban joyas; el asesinato fue atribuido a un robo. La diplomacia británica presionó para solucionar el delito y se arrestó a tres ladrones; dos de ellos fueron colgados y uno escapó de prisión. Ha habido especulaciones de que Egerton estaba involucrado en ventas fraudulentas en Texas, de que tenía vínculos con órdenes masónicas o de que un amante desconocido de Alicia estuvo detrás del asesinato. Una pintura del Barranco del Desierto (El Valle de México) fue vendido en Nueva York en el 2007 por $384,000. Su pintura El Valle de México (1837) está en el Fondo de arte del Gobierno británico.

Having abandoned his family in England, Egerton returned to Mexico in 1841 with Alice Edwards, the teenaged daughter of another British painter. He and the eight-month pregnant Alice were murdered in the village of Tacubaya (present day Mexico City), Mexico, where they had rented a house, on 27 April 1842. Egerton was carrying large amounts of money, and both he and Alice were wearing jewelry which was untouched, although the murder was attributed to a robbery. British diplomatic pressure to solve the crime led to the arrest of three local petty thieves, two of whom were hanged, and one of whom was allowed to escape from prison. There has been speculation that Egerton's alleged involvement in fraudulent land sales in Texas, his ties to a Masonic order, or an unknown jealous lover of Alice was behind the killing. A painting of The Ravine of the Desert (The Valley of Mexico) was sold at Christie's New York in 2007 for $384,000. His painting The Valley of Mexico (1837) is in the British Government Art Collection. (en)
