Exhibition Description

Among a selection of fine 16th century to 19th century Italian and French Drawings, a rare group of spectacular quality and in excellent condition of five gouaches and watercolours  from the mid-18th century by the British artist Thomas Robins will be presented. Thomas Robins (1716-1770) was mainly active in Gloucestershire and Somerset, though not exclusively, and was the author of extraordinary views of English gardens and botanical, entomological drawings. These sheets reveal that Robins was an excellent painter of birds too. Overall, his works demonstrate both the deep feeling for nature in the Georgian era, the development of curiosity and the scientific spirit of the Enlightenment.
