Samuel Prout

Painting is 26cm x 19cm

John Ruskin, whose work often emulated Prout’s, wrote in 1844, “Sometimes I tire of Turner, but never of Prout”. Prout is often compared to his contemporaries; Turner, Gainsborough, Constable and Ruskin, whom he taught. 

The Tate Gallery has another picture by Samuel Prout of the same subject, a print of which is in the Collection.

In 1870 Ruskin produced a small book titled ‘Samuel Prout by John Ruskin M.A.’ a  10 page appreciation of Samuel Prout by John Ruskin. It is one of the rarest items in our Collection.

All of our images have been digitally restored bringing them back to perfect condition, they are absolutely stunning. You can purchase prints of them all at our Etsy Art Gallery 2020 in original, A4 and in some cases A3 sizes at very reasonable prices.
