THE ROAD TO THE ABBEY
1763 –1841 Signed
Oil on canvas 15 x 36 inches
Arnald was born in Farndip, Northamptonshire in 1763 and became a landscape painter in oils and watercolours. He was a pupil of one of the Pethers.
He exhibited a steady stream of paintings at the Royal Academy from 1788 – 1841. Also at the Society of Artists from 1790 to 91 and at the British Institution 1807 to 1842. In 1810 he became an associate member of the Royal Academy.
Echoes of Gainsborough, Barret and the Dutch 17th Century landscape school are all visible and are characteristic of his work. His canvases show fine subdued colouring and Arnald shone brightest in his smaller things, often painted for illustration to topographical volumes on paper. Many of these glow with bright but always tempered tint, laid on with a richness unseen in the larger canvases which failed to produce for him full academic promotion, a failure perhaps equally due to some antagonism to him on the part of the Royal Academicians, notably Sir T. Lawrence.
He died in the Pentonville area on 21 November 1841.
Works in The National Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Wolverhampton Gallery.
