Joseph Nash, Watercolor, "The Country Manor"
Joseph Nash, British, 1808-1878, "The Country Manor," This is a very grand watercolor by noted British artist Joseph Nash (1808-1878). The sight size of this painting is 26 3/4 x 18 inches, it was painted in 1840 and is signed and dated in the lower right corner, framed. Joseph Nash studied art and architecture with Augustus Charles Pugin, becoming known for his finely detailed images of British architecture, from cathedrals to castles and manors. He would very often place a group of people in the foreground of his compositions, in a way that brought life and energy to the architecture, as can be seen in this image. Nash was a member of the Society of Painters in Water Colours and frequently exhibited his work there as well as at the Royal Academy, The British Institution, and The New Watercolour Society.
