John Postle Heseltine, River Landscape

Thieme-Becker XVI (1923), 573; Vollmer VI (1962), 51. – Printed in brown on toned strong hand-made paper. – According to Leporini (erroneously “1843-1912”) Heseltine was besides Esdaile “the greatest collector of drawings in England since Lawrence”. – Thieme-Becker:

“ Money-broker by profession he came as collector to the art educating himself autodidactically in the etching (since 1862/63). Exhibited 1869-1916 frequently in the Royal Academy. H. has worked a long series of landscape etchings with motifs from England, France and Italy. He loves vast spaces and surfaces of water and depicts with pleasure unpretentious motifs, river banks, isolated farms … The practice is skilful, but a little dry. ”
