old painting:-
thumbnail PR0918, button to large image
Painting, oil on canvas, Catbells and Causey Pike, Derwentwater, Cumberland, by William James Blacklock, 1854.
This is a view of Catbells and Causey Pike beyond Derwent Water in the Lake District on a fine summer's day. Bright sunshine throws the shadows of the fells beyond the lake into sharp relief. In the middle distance to right of composition the church spire of St John's Church, Keswick can be seen rising from thick woodland in front of which sheep are grazing. In the foreground a sandy track leads towards the lake in the centre of the composition. A woman stands amongst clumps of flowering heather, her back towards the viewer, looking towards the church spire. This painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1854. Blacklock is one of Cumbria's most important landscape painters. He painted the scenery of Cumbria, the Lake District and the Borders and particularly favoured remote areas. He painted these landscapes in his own uniquely precise style.
The composition shows considerable artistic licence. Blacklock has altered components of the picture by bringing St John's Church in Keswick into view to make a more pleasing composition. Blacklock's unique painting style is very precise and has an almost three dimensional effect.
