Follower of J.W. Turner
Turner created a series of masterpieces from a synthesis of previous ideas and discoveries in the middle of the second decade of the nineteenth century. One particular work, a large watercolour of Tivoli, 1871 demonstrated his command of Italianic landscape which prepared himself for his first visit to Italy in 1819, a subject he would continue paint in watercolour and later in oil until 1850.
This wonderful colourful painting by a talented hand and follower shows similarities with several of Turners Italianic landscapes.
