Study of Horses under a Tree, c. 1800

Thomas Rowlandson
British, 1756 - 1827
pen, brush and brown ink with blue wash over graphite on wove paper ?, laid down on laid paper
26.7 x 37 cm
Purchased 1924
National Gallery of Canada (no. 3120)

Rowlandson's peaceful nature studies offer a respite from the often boisterous comedy of his satirical pictures. They are drawn from life - unlike the imaginary shenanigans of his comic scenes - and recall the pastoral landscapes of Thomas Gainsborough and other contemporaries of the artist.
