JAMES WARD, R.A. (1769-1859) (Lots ) In a review of an exhibition of drawings by James Ward and Walter Greaves at Spink & Son in 1940, the writer was struck by the compass and variety of Ward's work. In his words James Ward is revealed as an artist of a far wider range than is usually attributed to him. In these sensitive and often charming drawings the cross-currents of the English art of the period make themselves felt (see E. G. Phillips, 'Drawings by James Ward and Walter Greaves', Burlington Magazine, LXXVI, no. 446, May 1940, p. 166).
