Chateau d'Ecouen

Artist: William Callow

Date: 1833

William Callow (1812–1908) was an English landscape painter, engraver and water colourist. Aged 11 he was apprenticed to the artist Fielding, where he learnt the technique of plein air sketching. Fielding found him work as an engraver in Paris and when there Callow discovered the work of Richard Parkes Bonington and was encouraged by Thomas Shotter Boys, an associate of Bonington’s, to concentrate on watercolour work. His progress in the technique was rapid and he became popular as a teacher of watercolour painting in the English style. After exhibiting a watercolour of Richmond Hill in the Paris salon of 1831, he was offered a job teaching the family of King Louis Philippe I of France. Callow travelled widely and regularly visited Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Holland. He also went on sketching tours all over Britain. His watercolours answered the public's need for travel imagery depicting scenic views and picturesque corners of European cities. His style changed little over his prolific and very long career.

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.
