Study for the Tree in "The Rookery", circa 1854, watercolour by William James Blacklock (1816-1858). An ancient oak tree with hollow trunk stands beside a drystone wall. This is a study for the tree on the far left of composition in The Rookery by William James Blacklock. Blacklock is one of Cumbria's most important landscape painters. He painted the scenery of Cumbria, the Lake District and the Borders and particularly favoured remote areas. He painted these landscapes in his own uniquely precise style.
