J.C.A. Marston was a mid 19th Century watercolourist with a remarkably dynamic approach to form and palette, seemingly far ahead of the prevalent styles of the period. Shunning traditional artistic endeavours, Marston crafted highly illustrative, almost theatrical settings, with a focus on light, shadow and depth. His work includes architectural studies, genre scenes, portraiture, river settings and the natural world. Evidently well-travelled, his work depicts Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.
