A wonderful country watercolour painted at the age of 13 by what was to become one of the most popular artists of the day John Arnesby Brown. Labels and provenance to the verso.

John Arnesby Brown
Painter of landscapes, especially with cows. Born in Nottingham and studied art there with Andrew McCallum and then with Sir Hubert von Herkomer at his Bushey School of Art, 1889–92.


Brown’s reputation became international, but he concentrated his work on St Ives in Cornwall and Norfolk.


Exhibited RA, Leicester Galleries, Goupil Gallery, RSA and at many other venues. The Tate Gallery holds three typical scenes: Morning, Silver Morning and The Line of the Plough.


Brown was elected RA in 1915 and was knighted in 1938. Died at Haddiscoe, Norfolk, in 1955, with a memorial exhibition in Norwich, 1959.
