Title

Cottages near St. Albans

Date

c.1808-1820

Description

Watercolour heightened with bodycolour, gum arabic and scratching out. This is an early work dating from between 1808 and 1820 when Hunt's early patron Dr Thomas Monro took a cottage at Bushey, Hertfordshire where Hunt was a frequent visitor. He produced a number of similar drawings of cottages and farm buildings during this period. A view of St. Albans Cathedral by Hunt is in the Victoria and Albert Museum and a view of a street in St. Albans is in the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven (see John Witt, William Henry Hunt, 1982, nos. 168 and 247).
