Lot Essay

The Scarborough exhibition in which Cottager and Tramps was entered was given the following entry in the Art Journal of 1884 :

On 6th August an Art Exhibition was opened in the new School of Art. It includes drawings from the National Gallery by Turner, a selection of water-colour drawings by the great English masters from South Kensington, paintings from the Royal Academy, Grosvenor, and Water-colour Exhibitions, and many other works by the foremost artists of the day, exhibited for the first time; also a collection of Art pottery and goldsmiths' work from South Kensington. The exhibition will remain open during the months of August and September. (p. 288)

To date, no catalogue of the exhibition has been traced.

We are grateful to David Linnell for his help in the preparation of this catalogue entry.
