Bonington, the Undercliff, a watercolour from 1828


Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-28) could almost rival Constable for the freshness and spontaneity of his landscapes, although his range was much more limited; his most memorable images always seem to portray moist breezy days with scudding clouds, often by the sea-side. But who can tell what he might have achieved if he had not died in his mid-twenties?
