John Joseph Cotman  (1814-78)

Norfolk Landscape

Watercolour, signed

The second son of John Sell Cotman is one of the most instantly recognisable of watercolourists. This is particularly true of his 'red' period, which is reminiscent in its studied simplicity of Shoreham vintage Samuel Palmer. This view of Norwich Castle with the River Wensum in the foreground is typical in its almost expressionist intensity of colour
