Lot Essay

Laporte was very much influenced by Paul Sandby's topographical style. He had a considerable practice as a drawing master in London, teaching amongst others Dr Thomas Monro, who was the great early patron of both Turner and Girtin. The present sheet is typical of Laporte's bucolic compositions and use of bodycolour.
