          Artist details

          English painter Thomas Girtin, renowned for his watercolour landscapes. Girtin's early style was influenced by his teacher, the topographical watercolourist Edward Dayes. Girtin's mature style using dramatic light and shade introduced a new force into watercolour painting, enhancing its status and giving it a more competitive edge with oil painting.
