Joshua Cristall P.O.W.S. (1768-1847).

A Gleaner.

Inscribed on old mount: gleaner, watercolour over pencil, mounted in a hand-washed conservation mount, framed in a modern limed oak moulding.

35 x 25 cm; 13 3/4 x 9 7/8 inches.

Provenance:

Private collection U.K. until 2018.

Cristall’s charming sketches of country women at work provide an interesting record of rural labour in the early nineteenth century when the land was changing fast as a result of the Industrial revolution.

Much of his work depicted country people, their natural dignity and simplicity qualities he found appealing. Encouraged by the popularity of his country figure studies he exhibited many such works.

He was a founder member of the Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1804 and his work is included in the collections of many major U.K. museums.
