AN EXTENSIVE ITALIANATE LANDSCAPE
WITH FIGURES RESTING
Born circa 1750 died 1807 Signed
Oil on canvas 25 x 34 inches
Framed size 31 x 40 inches
John Rathbone was born in Cheshire and earned himself the nickname ‘The Manchester Wilson’.
He was a self-taught artist and his paintings were frequently embellished with figures by his drinking partners, George Morland & Ibbetson who were friends of his.
Despite living in London, Rathbone’s paintings were views of the countryside and he must have spent much time travelling.
He exhibited 48 paintings at the Royal Academy from 1785 to 1806. These paintings were landscape views of Cumberland, Lancashire, Derbyshire, Scotland, Wales, Hereford, Cheltenham and Kent.
In this work the figures would appear to have been painted by
J.C. Ibbetson. The view itself is very likely to be in the Lake District with a strong Italian flavour
He also exhibited at the Society of Artists.
Works represented: Walker Art Gallery; Leeds City AG; Liverpool; Salford Museum & AG; Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
