Three Trees, from "Norfolk Picturesque Scenery"

John Crome British

Not on view

A leader of the Norwich School (artists based near that Norfolk town who developed a distinctive local landscape style), Crome worked in oils, watercolors, and as a drawing master, and is remembered as an expressive etcher. From 1809, he created rustic images derived from plein-air sketches that anticipate the Etching Revival. Unpublished during Crome's lifetime, sets titled "Norfolk Picturesque Scenery, Consisting of Thirty-One Etchings" were issued in 1834 to benefit his widow.
