The Colonnade of Queen Mary Court, Greenwich

Artist: James Holland

Date:1833

James Holland (1799 –1870) was an English painter of flowers, landscapes, architecture and marine subjects, and book illustrator. He was equally skilful in both oils and watercolours and was a member of the Royal Watercolour Society. As a child he painted flowers on pottery in the Davenport factory, alongside his family. In 1819, he moved to London where he continued to work as a pottery painter, but also gave lessons in drawing landscapes, architecture, and marine subjects. Holland did a lot of drawing for the illustrated annuals of the day, and for this he visited Venice, Milan, Geneva, and Paris in 1836, and Portugal in 1837. He continued to travel to the continent over the next 20 years and buildings in European cities became his favourite subject for his brilliantly coloured paintings. He was one of the finest colourists of the English school, and his pictures, especially those of Venice, though neglected in his lifetime, became much sought after in the years after his death.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
