GEORGE BURRELL WILLCOCK

1811-1852 Signed
Oil on canvas 25 x 30 inches
Framed size 35 ¼ x 40 ½ inches

Willcock was born in Exeter and became a landscape painter.
He initially started work as a coach painter but gave that up to study landscape painting under his friend James Stark.
He went on to exhibit 12 paintings at the Royal Academy from 1846 to 1851. His address during this time was 95 Albany Street, Regents Park.
Willcock also exhibited 7 paintings at the British Institution and 31 at the Society of British Artists.
He spent most of his time painting in Devonshire and his style is very like that of Stark.
His works are delightful and he invested his scenery with much of the charm of F.W. Watts whom he resembles in the sense that he too, was a disciple of John Constable. Part of his merit is his excellent technique, a “fat” and creamy impasto of good quality and high and pleasant tone.
