Title

Back of the new mills, Norwich

1812


Artist

John Crome

England

22 Dec 1768 - 22 Apr 1821


About

Crome is essentially the founder of the Norwich school. The group included professional and amateur artists who devoted themselves mainly to unpretentious and intimate studies of landscape. As with most of Crome’s work, the scenery depicted in this etching is located close to his Norwich home. Crome etched 34 plates but did not publish them. The plates were subsequently issued by his widow and son in 1834.
