Atrrib. Copley Fielding (1787-1855) - 19th Century Watercolour, Castle At Dusk
A highly accomplished watercolour with very fine detail, attributed to the artist Copley Fielding. The artist has mixed a loose, wash sky with some incredibly fine and exact architectural details in the little coastal town and boats. This painting shows a very skilled hand with a flare for composition.
The artist has signed to the lower right corner. The painting has been presented in a black, glazed frame with off-white card mount.On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There is one small piece of debris trapped behind the glazing. The glazing has several small and unnoticeable scratches in the top left quadrant. The frame is in fine condition.

Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding (22 November 1787 – 3 March 1855), commonly called Copley Fielding, was an English painter born in Sowerby, near Halifax, and famous for his watercolour landscapes. At an early age Fielding became a pupil of John Varley. In 1810 he became an associate exhibitor in the Old Watercolour Society, in 1813 a full member and in 1831 President of that body (later known as the Royal Society of Watercolours), until his death. In 1824 he won a gold medal at the Paris Salon alongside Richard Parkes Bonington and John Constable. He also engaged largely in teaching the art and made ample profits. He later moved to Park Crescent in Worthing and died in the town in March 1855.
Copley Fielding was a painter of much elegance, taste and accomplishment and has always been highly popular with purchasers. He painted a vast number of all sorts of views (occasionally in oil-colour) including marine subjects. Specimens of his work from 1829 to 1850 can be seen in the water-colour gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum and other major museums. Among the engraved specimens of his art is the Annual of British Landscape Scenery, published in 1839.
