WILLIAM COLMAN DIBDEN (1810-1893)

 A Fishing Village.  Dibden was born at Bletchworth, Surrey, and became a London-based painter. He worked at the General post Office for a while, and began to exhibit pictures when 21.  He painted in England, Belgium, Germany and Northern France, published  A Guide to Watercolour Painting in 1859, and probably also taught art.  Around 1883, he lost his sight and could no longer paint.  He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Rl. Society of British Artists, British Institution and the Portland Gallery. 14.5 x 16.25" £350

Birket Foster, who became well-known for his pictures of children and landscapes in his life-time, had no formal art training.  After first drawing for The Illustrated London News and Punch, he turned to illustrating books with delicate vignettes. In 1858, he dropped illustration for painting, mostly in watercolour. His tender treatment of many subjects, matched with an unparalleled technical ability, was admired by artists and the public. His unique work has always been expensive, and subsequently has usually been kept in good condition.  We have framed to Museum Standard, with cotton board; Museum Glass is fitted to all the Birket Foster watercolours listed.  Authenticity guaranteed.
