David Cox Snr (1783-1859)
David Cox was an English landscape painter, one of the most important members of the Birmingham School of landscape painters and an early precursor of Impressionism. Cox exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1805.
He often worked directly from nature, en plein air, capturing the cloudy, changeable weather and rich green landscape of the UK.
This painting is a watercolour showing a view of Dudley Castle in the distance on the hill. The canal can be seen in the foreground with barges on it.
