About this artwork

This picturesque depiction of the coastal town of Appledore, located in Devon, is the work of British watercolour artist Thomas Girtin. The painting not only showcases Girtin's unique style but also serves as a testament to his craft. He brilliantly leverages the translucent property of watercolours by creating the art piece in separate layers, revealing each phase of his creativity. This print is as vibrant as the original and has received a nod of approval from the Courtauld Gallery. Your purchase of this work will significantly contribute to the Courtauld's efforts.

About the artist

Thomas Girtin Thomas Girtin (1775-1802) was born in London in the same year as J.M.W. Turner and had a short life of just 27 years. Aged 14, during the time of the French Revolution, Girtin began his apprenticeship and by 19, he was showcasing his work at London's Royal Academy and creating watercolour landscapes for private collectors. Unlike Turner though, Girtin never quite fit into the art establishment. He didn't study at the Academy's schools and was rumored to hold radical sympathies. He tried to shift from the conventional reliance on wealthy patrons selling his art in the open market.

In Girtin's brief lifetime, the art of watercolour underwent a significant transformation, notably in landscape watercolours, which became grander in scale and ambition. Led by Girtin and Turner, watercolourists moved from careful stained drawings to a dramatic painting style capturing varied moods and light and weather effects. Despite resistance to these rapid changes, particularly amidst revolution and war, watercolour painting briefly epitomised modern art.
