AN EXCEPTIONAL GROUP OF WATERCOLOURS BY SAMUEL OWEN (1768-1857)
A watercolourist of coastal views and fishing scenes, Samuel Owen had a far more romantic approach to painting than most eighteenth century marine artists. His work was dedicated to atmosphere, composition and movement.
He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, London, from 1794 to 1807 and his drawings were engraved by William Bernard Cooke (1778-1855) for his work entitled, The Thames, published in 1811. He later collaborated with William Westall (1781-1850) to produce a publication entitled Picturesque Tour of the River Thames, Ackermann, London, 1828.
His work is strongly represented in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
