Attrib. Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-1828) - 19th Century Watercolour, Coast
DescriptionA wonderful miniature watercolour scene by the English artist Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-1828). Here the artist has captured an atmospheric coastal scene with a lighthouse and large castle wall. A lone figure stands on a rocky outcrop with a walking stick in hand. The delicate brushstrokes and rich colours add a depth to the composition. Bonington travelled extensively around the North coast of France and this small watercolour could be from this period in his short life. Painted on wove laid to thin card. Signed.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and foxing.

Richard Parkes Bonington (25 October 1802 – 23 September 1828) was an English Romantic landscape painter, who moved to France at the age of 14 and can also be considered as a French artist, and an intermediary bringing aspects of English style to France. Becoming, after his very early death, one of the most influential British artists of his time, the facility of his style was inspired by the old masters, yet was entirely modern in its application. His landscapes were mostly of coastal scenes, with a low horizon and large sky, showing a brilliant handling of light and atmosphere. He also painted small historical cabinet paintings in a freely-handled version of the troubadour style.
