Lot Essay

The view depicted looks over the Thames southwards from Richmond Hill towards Petersham Meadows. Barret was one of the founding members of the Old Watercolour Society in 1805. He lived in the Paddington area for most of his life and his subjects were mostly London and Thames views. Barret exhibited a View from Richmond Hill at the Old Water-colour Society in 1818, which may be the present watercolour.
