Peter Graham, Feathers Hotel Ludlow - Original late 19th-century etching print

An original late 19th-century etching print, Peter Graham Feathers Hotel Ludlow.

A detailed architectural study on laid.Peter Graham (1836-1921) was born in Edinburgh and trained at the Trustees' Academy in that city under Robert Scott Lauder. He at first studied figure subjects, then from 1859 he began to explore landscape painting after finding inspiration on holiday in Deeside. His landscape paintings were large scale and captured the grandeur of nature. His response to the landscape was influenced the poetry of Sir Walter Scott. He enjoyed great success at the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Royal Academy, London, where he was elected RA in 1881 and Senior RA in 1919.

This picture is from a collection of superb 19th-century works associated with the Bath area, possibly once owned by Lady Frances Mary Perring. The collection includes landscapes by Joseph Horlor (1809-1887), as well as drawings by, and drawn for, Lady Perring. An inscription on the verso of one drawing suggests that Horlor was possibly Perring’s drawing teacher.
