About This Item

The archive collection comprises : four signed letters dated from the early part of the 19th century, addressed to Arnald from fellow artists discussing various aspects of their work, etc. They are R. Livesay, Robert Sherebourne, Sir David Wilkie, James Glaisher from the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. Two signed letters to F.J. Smith, keeper of prints in the British Museum, one from James Northcote, the other from Thomas Stothard. Two pictorial signed letters from H. Cowel (?), postmarked York, 1816 and 1818 discussing aspects of York architecture, Cawood Castle, and Nunnery Castle.. With various miscellanea including a sheet of the parish register entries for Marston, extensive (recent) genealogical information relative to ancestors and descendants of Arnald, a printed portrait of F.J. Smith (1833). With an important collection of SIX ORIGINAL PORTRAITS IN PENCIL of significant fellow Royal Academy members, Sir William Chambers, Robert Smith jun, John Bacon senior, Thomas Banks, Benjamin West, John Flaxman. This compendium of Arnald's fellow-professionals in the arts, was probably put together early in his life, in the 1780s or 90s. (both Chambers and Bacon were dead before 1800). George Arnald while mostly remembered as landscape and topographical painter, also was known to a lesser extent as a painter of portraits, including Sir Robert Peel, Duke of Wellington, and William Wordsworth (who is known to have bemoaned Arnald's literary ignorance). Provenance : passed through the family by descent.. Book.
