John Sell Cotman (1782-1842) was one of the finest English artists of the Romantic Era. His talent was immediately recognized and in 1800, at the age of 18, he exhibited at the Royal Academy. He returned to his native Norwich in 1806 and travelled throughout southwest England, producing a large number of superb watercolors and etchings. Unlike contemporary "architecturals", his work is soft and appealing on a personal scale. Reminiscent of Piranesi, they reduce the scale from civilizations lost to monuments found in the next village. The following are original Cotman etchings, dated and plate sizes as indicated. Each is in fine condition within the plate, newly matted, with full archival material (100% rag mat) and ready for framing-original antique art by a noted master at bargain prices! STALLS AND PISCINA NORTON SOUPECORS CHURCH. 1817. 11 1/2" x 7 1/2". Gothic arches and pillars define three stepped stalls and the double piscina (niche for washing the sacred vessels). A pleasant horizontal subject.
