And yet another painting for my exhibition.
Watercolour on watercolour paper, 11 3/4" x 8 1/4"
This painting shows the statue of that great Victorian poet, Alfred (Lord) Tennyson with his dog in the grounds of Lincoln Cathedral. Born in 1809 in Somersby, Lincolnshire, Tennyson demonstrated his love for composing poetry from an early age. He composed a 6,000 line epic poem when he was only 12! Tennyson was responsible for some of the greatest and most influential poetry in the English language. His poems of Medieval and Arthurian legends inspired the painters of the Pre-Raphelite Brotherhood to some of their most famous works.
