The painting “Peace and War” is one of the best examples of Edwin Cockburn’s work, serving as a record of everyday domestic life in early Victorian times and was priced at the not inconsiderable sum of 50 guineas. The peaceful cottage interior showing a wealth of domestic detail is contrasted with the bright sunlight and bustle going on outside: this clever handling of light being a feature of Cockburn’s work. This picture was exhibited in 1857 at the Royal Society of British Artists, which is where he exhibited most of his works.
Edwin Cockburn’s paintings were popular in his own lifetime and in all he exhibited 66 pictures in London; 34 at the Royal Society of British Artists, 15 at the Royal Academy, and 16 at the British Institution. There are examples of his work in the British Museum and the Pannett Gallery in Whitby.
