WILLIAM REDMORE BIGG,

RA (1756-1828)
SUNDAY MORNING; A COTTAGE FAMILY GOING TO CHURCH

Signed and dated 1794,

oil on canvas
99.5 x 125cm.

Exhibited: London,

The Royal Academy,

no.58

Engraved: in stipple,

by W. Nutter,

1795 (a copy of which accompanies this lot)

Bigg revered the humble,

family-orientated life of the cottage dweller. His works from the 1790's show a sustained interest in blending the virtues of honest labour with the concerns of selfless assistance to others: "The Benevolent Heir Restoring an Old Cottager,

Confined for Debt,

to his Family" (1797) is typical of Bigg's work of the period whilst other compositions such as "Saturday Morning: Favourite Chickens going to Market" (1791) and "Saturday Evening,

with the Husbandman's Return from his Labour" (1792) suggest a themed suite of \\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`weekend\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\`\\` pictures to complement this subject.

The rustic family in this picture appears to be implausibly well-dressed and refined. Bigg does not hesitate to show care and compassion within this domestic scene: note the little girl with a stick directing the dog away from her grandfather's sore leg as the man's head is wrapped in a scarf by the mother. Two prayer books and a Bible reflect the atmosphere of piety and the gentle concern shown in ensuring that the frail patriarch is taken to church with the minimum of discomfort.

Bigg's moralizing subjects found unexpected favour in America and copies of his works (including this one) are to be found in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston,

having been removed from Oak Hill Mansion in Salem,

Massachusetts (the interiors of which were furnished in 1800-1801).

A print of this subject,

from the British Museum Collection,

was exhibited at "Rustic Simplicity: Scenes of Cottage Life in 19th Century British Art" (Nottingham,

1998)

Description:
William Redmore Bigg
British, 1755-1828

A Suspicion of Smuggling
Oil on canvas
25 x 30 inches (63.5 x 76.2 cm)
Provenance:
The Earls of Aylesford, Packington Hall, Warwickshire (according to an old label)
Private collection, New York

An Associate of the Royal Academy from 1787 and a full Academician in 1814, Bigg painted scenes of English country life, including a number depicting sailors and shipwrecks. Here a prosperous famer--a John Bull type familiar to English collectors of Bigg's time--is shown listening with some suspicion to the story of two shipwrecked sailors. As the young man who found the two men awaits his father's verdict and the younger children crowd around, the farmer suspects that the sailors might be smugglers. Barely hidden is the sly suggestion that the farmer--clearly not a rich man, but one who enjoys his tobacco, whose wife wears a silk dress and whose youngest son is offering brandy--may well himself be a good customer of the smugglers' trade.
