River Landscape With Fishermen

This early 19th-century drawing by British artist Amos Green (1735–1807) depicts a wild upland landscape with river, fishermen and bridge. It’s possibly a view in the Lake District or Scotland.

A tangle of ancient trees hang lofty boughs across a well-trod rural track. Clutched together like family, standing for centuries amid brutal elements. In contrast, a river bends innocuously - winding out of view as figures cast their rods.

Green was a gentleman, a humble connoisseur, too modest to achieve the heights he deserved. Beginning his artistic life at a printer's, his aptitude and advanced taste soon led to various commissions from significant patrons.

But it’s his naturalistic and honest draughtsmanship that’s stood the test of time. Particularly the sketches he completed during his extensive tours with beloved wife Harriet. The two travelled together, meeting late in life and filling their remaining days with adventure, conversation and art.

Following Green’s death, Harriet drafted his memoirs. We’ve written extensively on the subject in our directory.
