Description

Samuel Owen specialised as a painter of marine subjects, however, unlike many of his contemporaries he was less concerned with creating accurate portraits of the vessels. Rather, as evidenced by the present watercolour, Owen wanted to capture the romance of the subject, concentrating on atmosphere and mood.

Numerous of his watercolours were reproduced as engravings and included in publications such as W. B. Cooke’s The Thames, published in 1811 and Picturesque Tour on the River Thames, published by Owen and William Westall in 1828
