An Old Watermill

Henry Hewitt was a good mid 19th century landscape painter. He is known to be Bristol based artist. He is recorded as living in Cheltenham Place Bristol in the 1850s.
This is a lovely example of his rather lyrical and romantic style. The painting is presented in its fine original exhibition standard frame.
He exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists
Examples of his work are held in the collection of the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.
