River Orwell. Woolverstone House.
1843.
Watercolour in sepia tones. Sheet size: 255 x 360mm (10 x 14"). Glued to backing sheet in corners. Extreme right corner detached.
A fine watercolour depicting the River Orwell, with a steam boat travelling on the right and a sailing vessel in the centre. Woolverstone Hall can be seen in the middle gound. The house was built in 1776 for William Berners, a property developer from London who had gradually been acquiring extensive land­holdings on the Shotley peninsula. The back of the house overlooks the River Orwell at a picturesque curve and from the sides of the house there are views both down and upstream towards Ipswich. The high level of skill and accuracy of the painting would suggest that it was made by an architect.

Occasional offsetting and spotting. Includes an amateur watercolour portrait after Worlidge. Some sheets on watermarked 1823 Whatman paper.
A posthumous collection of prints by Thomas Worlidge (1700-66), known as the 'English Rembrandt' for his etching technique and fondness for copying subjects by Rembrandt and his contemporaries. The subjects here include several Rembrandt copies and other Dutch genre scenes, along with religious subjects, portraits and oddities such as a camel, écorché figure, and portraits of 'Mahomet, a Turkish Merchant' and his companion 'Hamet'. Born in Peterborough, Worlidge was a pupil of Alessandro Maria Grimaldi, whose daughter Arabella he married. His widow issued his plates in 1766 and 1767 after his death with the numbers in the corners, but very few impressions were issued and sold by Worlidge during his lifetime.
