Horse Chestnut, John Robert Cozens, 1789

paper, h 243mm × w 317mm More details

Towering over a flat meadow and sheltering a herd of deer, these horse chestnuts were surely sketched at an English country estate. An interesting aspect is the way Cozens preferred to render shaded areas with the coarse, chalk-like lines produced by soft-ground etching (vernis mou) rather than the even aquatint tones.
