Robert Gallon [1845 - 1925] was a landscape painter who lived in London. He travelled extensively throughout the British Isles to paint his subjects. His etchings appear loose but actually have defined detail. The silhouetted buildings along the Temple Embankment and busy barges making their way along the Thames are a very good contrast to the companion etching 'Tidal Thames' where the wintery sky and snow covered banks show the Thames as a busy river highway. Gallon actively exhibited during the years 1868 - 1903 at the principal London Galleries, particularly the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists.
