Cornelius Pearson (1805-1891) - 19th Century Watercolour, Ross Castle, Killarney

Item Sold


A delicate watercolour with gouache by the listed British artist Cornelius Pearson (1805-1891). The artist's composition of the setting is in a typically fine and naturalistic style of the period, where the figure and the boats on the river add scale and definition to the surrounding natural elements. Well-presented in a gold card mount and gilt wooden frame. Signed. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and minor surface marks. Some scuffing and stable cracking to the frame, as well as some widening to the joints. Small areas of restoration to the mouldings.


11.6 x 21.1cm (4.6" x 8.3")
Framed Size: 28.1 x 37.7cm (11.1" x 14.8")

Artist Biography

Cornelius Pearson was a landscape and topographical painter, as well as an engraver. He was born in Boston, Lincolnshire, and went to London at an early age, where he became an engraver.

He then began to paint, mainly in watercolour. Pearson exhibited at Suffolk Street between 1843 and 1879, at the Royal Academy from 1845 until 1872, and at the New Watercolour Society. He was one of the oldest members of the Langham Sketching Club. Two of his paintings of Wales are in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
