DAVID ROBERTS R.A.
1796 - 1864
Vignette
Pencil & watercolour, Signed & dated 'Dec 25th 1843'
Image size: 9 ¾ x 7 inches
Gilt frame

Mint
The Fine Arts Society label on the back says "The Artists daughter and by descent to David Bicknell Esq. From whom purchased" By the Fine Arts Society.

Roberts was in the habit of giving presents of his work to family & friends at Christmas, & the 'Dec 25' date indicates that this was a Christmas gift. Some works he gave were made specially but many were existing sketches or oils.

It's likely that this watercolour was made some time before Dec 1843 & would have been undated until given as a present. It may have been a sketch of an idea for a vignette or an alternative that wasn't used in the folios.

With thanks to Krystyna Matyjaszkiewicz
