Reverend Henry Robinson Wadmore MA
From a large collection we have acquired of original graphite drawings by Rev Henry Robinson Wadmore MA. Wadmore was evidently a talented amateur draughtsman and prolific sketcher. Our collection of graphite drawings, dating from 1863 to 1891, show his keen and sensitive observation of landscapes around England and France. He excelled at creating depth in his drawings through use of light and dark line and tone. His English scenes include the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire and mountains of the Lake District, as well as often depicting churches, abbeys, cathedrals and ecclesiastical buildings, including Hampstead, Wells, Worcester, Ely and St Albans. Wadmore was seemingly in France around 1875, and many of our landscapes depict coastal locations around the Toulon area, such as Cap Brun, Mourillon and Sablettes. Most are signed and inscribed and many are dated.
