Paintings by George Morland - 124

The Strawyard or The Straw Yard

This farm-yard 'Pastoral' is in the idiom of Turner's slightly older contemporary George Morland, whose prints of rustic life were highly popular in the early years of the 19th century. It is one of numerous tributes in the Liber to landscape and genre painters of the British School, which served not only to celebrate the various kinds of landscape painting that have particularly flourished in Britain, but also to draw implicit attention to Turner's ability to command every one of them. http://www.royalacademy.org.uk/ixbin/hixclient.exe?submit-button=search&search-form=theme/theme.html&_IXTHEME_=TURNER1
