William Drummond

A Mother & Children Within An Interior

This beautiful mid-19th-century watercolour by British artist William Drummond (act.1800-1860) depicts a mother and her children within an interior. One of her sons feeds the family parrot, while another leans on a portfolio.

William Drummond was an accomplished portraitist who fulfilled a burgeoning need amongst the middle and upper classes to have one’s likeness depicted as a symbol of power and prestige. His skill as a draughtsman brought much acclaim.

Parrots were a popular addition to many Victorian homes and celebrated for their repertoire and longevity.

Signed/dated, framed and glazed.
