About the artist
John Frederick Lewis developed his precocious talents as draughtsman and etcher who studied from live specimens and dissected cadavers. His early work as a sporting and wildlife painter later turned to watercolours, concentrating on landscape and topographical views and picturesque genre subjects. He began to travel in search of motifs, starting with an extensive sketching tour on the Continent in 1827. Other influences were Devon, Scotland, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece and present day Turkey.
