The artist's daughter Elizabeth, who married Joseph 13th Lord Wallscourt.
Purchased in Ireland, probably from descendants of Lord Wallscourt. with Daniel Shackleton, Edinburgh, 1990.
William Lock of Norbury, Jun. (1767-1847)
The majority of the drawings by this important amateur artist in lots 36-40 are uniform in style and in their general approach to their historical, mythological, Biblical and Shakespearean subjects. Although 18th century in style many of these are dated in the 1830s, by which time they were somewhat anachronistic. They reflect the enduring influence of Henry Fuseli, a close friend of William Lock, Sen. and a frequent visitor to the Locks' family home, Norbury Park in Surrey. Fuseli's influence is first apparent in a group of drawings by William Lock, Jun., of 1781 and 1782, when he was only eleven or twelve years old (see Nancy C. Pressly, The Fuseli Circle in Rome: Early Romantic Art of the 1770s, exhibition catalogue, New Haven, Yale Center for British Art, September-November 1979, p. 116).
Lot 35 is one of a group of works very different in style but possibly an early work by the artist. Nearly all these drawings were included in the Lock exhibition held by Daniel Shackleton for the Edinburgh Festival in 1990 and seem to have been acquired from Irish descendants of the artist's daughter Elizabeth, who married Joseph, 13th Lord Wallscourt.
