Charles Brooking 1725-1759 and the 18th Century British Marine Painters Summary


Charles Brooking is at the forefront of English marine painters, but since he died, aged thirty-six, in 1759, there was to be no recognition in his short life to justify his remarkable ability. He has probably produced the most atmospheric and beautiful marine paintings of all time. All his known pictures are illustrated and described in this much needed catalogue raisonn, together with all his known drawings and engravings. There is also a chapter on eighteenth century London marine engravers written by James Taylor, a curator at the National Maritime Museum. The book also describes the Dutch marine painters in the seventeenth century and shows how the English school developed following the Van de Veldes' work at Greenwich. This is the first book to cover fully eighteenth century British marine painters in general terms and Charles Brooking in particular. It is badly needed by scholars, collectors, sale rooms, museums and art galleries.
