John White Abbott (1764 - 1851)

Landscape: Houses at the Edge of a Wood

A522a; oil on canvas; 61 x 81 cm

Signed in monogram and dated: 1835

Presented by the executors of Miss Mabel Price in accordance with her wishes, 1939; WA1939.18.1

Abbott was the most distinctive follower of Francis Towne and like him, exhibited mostly watercolours. Apart from a few views of his native Exeter, his oil paintings are rarely of identified sites and most include picturesque cottages and staffage.
