Description

Although he never left Britain, White Abbott executed a number of continental, mainly Italian, views. It seems that his Italian views are mainly based on the work of Francis Towne, his friend and teacher, however the present drawing does not relate to any known work by Towne.

White Abbott worked as an apothecary and surgeon in Exeter for most of his life, until he retired to Fordlands, the estate he inherited from his uncle and Towne’s principal patron and executor, James White.
