David Cox, 'A terrace with figures', 1836, English landscape watercolour drawing

1836

About

Dimensions are 7.1 x 10.2 in (18 x 26 cm) unframed. Signed and dated l.l.: 'David Cox. 1836', watercolour over pencil with scratching out. This work is a vivid example of the evolving style of David Cox, R.W.S. (1783-1859), a key figure in the 'Golden Age' of English watercolour in the first part of the 19th century. Framed in a gold leaf frame (frame size 14 1/2 x 17 1/4 inches). In the summer of 1836, Cox spent a few weeks at Rowsley, painting at Haddon Hall in Derbyshire. He made several watercolours of elegant figures in seventeenth century costume strolling on the terrace there. Although this painting does not appear to be of Haddon, it fits in with this period of his oeuvre. Cox's handling of the distant hill in the landscape on the horizon foreshadow the rougher, bolder style of his later work, which art critic John Ruskin praised in 1857 for its peerless 'simplicity and seriousness.' The delicately drawn birds in the sky are a delight. David Cox is one of the most important and influential early 19th century British watercolorists examples of whose work are included in museum collections all over the world.
