James R. Morris, Le Pont des Art, Paris, Watercolor on Paper
An original watercolor, (pencil and grey wash), by James R. Morris, titled "Le Pont des Art, Paris", c. 1820. This painting displays an extensive view overlooking the River Seine in Paris, with a plethora of people walking along the banks and on the famous "Le Pont des Art" bridge with numerous small boats on the river. In the distance, one can also see a silhouette of Notre Dame.
James R. Morris was a pupil of Peter La Cave, (fl. 1789 - 1816). Richard Parkes Bonington and Thomas Shotter were also in Paris during this period.
The provenance: ex-collection of Francis Egerton, 1st Earl of Ellesmere, later known as Lord Francis Leveson-Gower, (1800-1857). A member of Parliament, Lord of the Treasury, Chief Secretary for Ireland, and Secretary of War. A major patron of the arts and trustee of The National Gallery. He also initiated the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, by donating the famous "Chandose Portrait" of Shakespeare, the first painting to enter the collection. This was a valuable gift to the collection: the only portrait of Shakespeare that has any claim to have been painted from real life.
