John Chessell Buckler
John C. Buckler was a London architectural painter & draughtsman, son of John Buckler, an architectural & antiquarian draughtsman.
Buckler, like his father, concentrated on the depiction of buildings & produced many fine watercolour drawings of British great houses, ruins & ancient sites such as churches. His drawings are accurate records of how buildings looked at a particular point in time & are therefore of interest to anyone who is researching the history of a locality or antiquity. He also practiced as an architect & designed many important buildings, including Butleigh Court, Somerset & the Choristers Hall, Magdalen College, Oxford. He published several books of prints & more general architectural publications during his lifetime.
Exhibited at the RA 1810-1844, also SS and OWS (Old Watercolour Society).
