John Edmund Buckley (1820-1884) - Watercolour, Malta Street Scene
DescriptionA very fine street scene in a Mediterranean coastal city, probably Malta. The artist has expertly captured the moonlight on the water. A later inscription with initials to the reverse, presumably taken from an inscription on the original album page. Unsigned. On wove.
Condition is typical for a picture of this age with some minor discolouration, but overall the appearance is very good.
8.9 x 12.8cm (3.5" x 5")

John Edmund Buckley was a member of the Irish Buckley family from Cork, along with Charles Frederick Buckley. John Buckley was working in Cork in 1835 as a miniaturist, portrait and landscape painter. Living with Charles Frederick Buckley, at 17 King William Street, in London in 1843, he began to exhibit at the Society of British Artists in the same year. He continued to do so intermittently until 1861, moving at least three times during that period: to Newman Street, in what was then the heart of the artistic quarter, north of Oxford Street (1846); 7 Rathbone Place, which runs parallel with Newman Street (1852); and 16 College Place, further north in Camden Town (1861). Dated works suggest that he painted until at least 1879.
