Bonington travelled there with his friend and fellow artist Alexandre Colin. A group of approximately seventy-seven sketches from this trip were bequeathed to the Biblioth?que Nationale de France, Paris by Atherton Curtis.

  • Study of a seated Woman -
    Sold

    Pencil

    13.1 by 10.3 cm., 5 by 4 inches

     

    This may belong to a group of sketches of women dated to circa 1827 (see Patrick Noon, Richard Parkes Bonington – the Complete Drawings, 2011, nos. 393-397). This is on the same sized sheet as `Study of a Seated Woman’ in the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford (Noon no. 394).

     

    However we are grateful to Patrick Noon who has pointed out that the small sketch in the upper right corner is also close to studies dated to circa 1825 (see Noon, op. cit., nos. 372-4).
