Follower of Paul Sandby RA (1731–1809) - 18thC Watercolour, House In The Meadow
DescriptionA wonderful English landscape in watercolour showing a small house in the middle of a meadow clearing, surrounded by tall trees. executed by an obvious follower of Paul Sandby, this scene has the delicate style and composition of Sandby's own work and a style that is indicative of the era. The painting is unsigned, on laid and presented in a contemporary gilt frame with glazing and a wash-line mount. On laid.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration, particularly in the upper right corner. There are two small tears to the wove at the top edge. The frame has minor surface scuffing but is in generally fine condition.
27.5 x 40.8cm (10.8" x 16.1")
A Founder Member of the Royal Academy, Paul Sandby is remembered as ‘the father of English watercolour’ and also pioneered the new printing technique of aquatint.
Sandby helped to further popularize watercolour through the printing technique of aquatint, which he named and promoted.
Sandby exhibited at the Society of Artists until 1768, when he defected to become a Founder Member of the new Royal Academy. He showed almost annually at the institution from its first exhibition in 1769 until his death in 1809. In his difficult final years Sandby was granted an annual pension by the Academy to support him and his family.
