Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Adolphus Knell (British 1801 - 1875) Fishing off the harbour Oil on canvas Signed, lower right 40.5 x 61cm (16 x 24in.) The Knell family were a family of marine painters during the 19th century. The best known and most successful of the family being William Adolphus Knell (c.1808 - 1875), who was strongly influenced by the Romantic Movement and is best known for his \‘Battle of Camperdown\’ painted in 1848, now owned by National Museums Scotland. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1815 and 1866. It is unclear exactly what relation William Callcott Knell (c.1830 - aft.1876) was to William Adolphus, and although it has been suggested that they could have been brothers, it has been pointed out that it would be unlikely to have two brothers with the same name. Another theory is that William Callcott was William Adolphus\’ son, which seems likely as they are recorded as sharing the same address in 1848. William Callcott exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1848 to 1865, although he continued painting until at least 1876 and it is unclear why works from this last decade were not exhibited. Both Knells\’ worked in a similar style and it is likely that the son was the father\’s pupil.

William Adolphus KNELL (BRITISH, 1805-1875) [The Battle of] Navarino 20th October 1827 Signed 'W.A. Knell' (lower left) and inscribed in pencil as per title (lower right) Watercolour with scratching out 7 x 10¼in. (18 x 26cm.) The last great fleet action of the age of sail, the Battle of Navarino ranged the allied British, French and Russian fleet of twenty-seven warships, including eleven ships-of-the-line against a combined Turko-Egyptian fleet of sixty-five ships, including three battleships and forty armed transports. At its conclusion, only fifteen Turkish ships remained afloat and they had suffered 4,000 casualties. Shortly afterwards and as a direct result of the Turkish defeat at Navarino, Greece attained her independence.
