Copy after John Sell Cotman British
Not on view
Areas of crude handling, and lack of finesse in forms and shadows, suggest that this drawing was made by a student copying a Cotman original. The master had returned to his home town of Norwich to run a school between 1823 and 1833, then moved back to London in 1834 to become drawing master at King's College School, retaining that position for the rest of his life. Part of his teaching practise was to lend students examples of his watercolors to copy.
