Richard Parkes Bonington
19th century
(Arnold, 1801 - 1828, London)

Bonington was born in England but moved with his family to Calais in 1817. He eventually made his way to Paris where he enrolled in the École des Beaux-Arts and joined the studio of Baron Gros, a proponent of romanticism. With several other artist friends, he travelled the French countryside recording medieval monuments and natural treasures – lakes, mountains, and forests. In a venture that appealed to the nascent nationalism of a country so frequently in political chaos, his pictures were published in albums suitable for a middle-class tourist market. In 1825 in the company of his friend Eugène Delacroix, he returned to his native Britain on a quest for commercially viable “picturesque views,” later published and sold in France.
