Thomas Girtin (1775-1802) was one of the greatest and most original of all English watercolourists. He was a friend, rival and later an inspiration to Turner, with whom he closely worked. He died aged just twenty-seven, shortly after completing his most ambitious and spectacular work, the Eidometropolis, a 360-degree panorama of London measuring over 100ft.
