    Provenance

    Thomas Lloyd (b.1826) of Cowesby Hall, Northallerton, Yorkshire and thence by descent until 1990

     

    Captain John Durrant (fl.1790-1830) was a highly skilled amateur artist and army officer who was stationed at Portchester Castle between 1803 and 1813. He was also stationed at Dover, Gosport and Colchester during his career.  An ability to sketch was a prized asset in the armed forces in the days before photography and Durrant is likely to have trained in the art of topographical draughtsmanship at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich where Paul Sandby, R.A. (1730-1809) taught until 1796. An album of over hundred drawings by him is in the collection of Hampshire council.
