John Sell Cotman


Cotman was Born in Norwich 1782 died in 1842. Cotman worked in oils, watercolour, pencil and chalk, and produced many hundreds of etchings. His work can be found in the UK at the Castle Museum and Art Gallery in Norwich (well over 2000 pieces), Tate Britain Gallery, the British Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, City Art Gallery and other regional centres. In the USA, Cotman is represented at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut and other galleries around the country.

After an inspiring vist to The Dulwich Picture Gallery to view an exhibition of Cotman. I decided to use some Cotman images for my art classes to reproduce in sepia ink and watercolour paint.

Cotman's name is used as a trademark by Winsor & Newton for a range of artist's watercolour materials.
