John Sell Cotman
John Sell Cotman, Norwich, 1782 - London, 1842
Extract from: The History Today Who's Who in British History
- Painter and artist who sketched and etched the cottage behind St Giles
- A Norfolk man, he settled first in Norwich where he was a leading member of the Norwich School, and then in Yarmouth (1811-23).
His mentor was J.M.W. Turner, who secured him a position at King's College, London.
Like Turner his subject was landscape, in Cotman's case spare and reminiscent of Japanese calligraphic paintings.
Greta Bridge (versions c.1805 and 1810) is a celebrated example.
Extract from: Bygone Ashtead
- On vacation in Ashtead in 1799 Cotman made sketches in Ashtead Churchyard and the Well House in Ashtead Park.
The one of Ashtead Churchyard was exhibited in the Royal Academy in 1800
