The Old Barn, Henry Bright
DescriptionThe Old Barn
Henry Bright 1810/14 -1873
British painter associated with The Norwich School.
Bright became a pupil of Alfred Stannard (1806–1889), the younger brother of Joseph Stannard. Bright painted in various locations in England, Scotland, Wales and the continent, working in oils, watercolour, chalk and pencil. During some of these sketching expeditions he was accompanied by J M W Turner, with whom he had struck up a friendship. Bright's work was also highly regarded by John Ruskin. Bright's first major exhibition was at the British Institution, London in 1836. He became a member of the New Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1839, where he exhibited until 1844. Bright developed friendships with leading artists, including James Duffield Harding. Bright was influenced by Harding’s oil and pencil technique.
Queen Victoria purchased Bright’s "Entrance to an Old Prussian Town" (London, Royal Collection) from the New Society of Painters in Watercolours. He also received several commissions from the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia.
His professional success extended to producing works jointly with other artists, including John Frederick Herring and William Shayer, where Bright usually contributed the background. Throughout his career in London, Bright maintained links with the Norwich artists.There is an extensive collection of Bright's art at the Castle Museum and Art gallery in Norwich. He is also represented at major galleries in London, Boston, San Francisco and elsewhere.
The Old Barn is a signed oil on panel and clearly reflects Brights skills and technique. Of a charming subject and reminiscent of halcyon days gone by, this little painting will bring a smile to the face and brighten gloomy days.
Very nice example of this artists work.
