Catalogue Note

William Wells purchased the Redleaf estate, near Penshurst in Kent, circa 1800. A retired shipbuilder and an enthusiastic art collector, he was a trustee of the National Gallery between 1835 and 1847. Wells was a significant patron of Frederick Richard Lee, as well as of Lee's friend and some-time collaborator Sir Edwin Landseer. Lee painted several views of an around Redleaf between the late 1820s and 1840s, many of which were exhibited at the Society of British Artists and the British Institution. The sale of Wells' collection in 1890 included forty-six pictures by Lee, including a large group of studies of fish, birds and other game (including the present lot), as well as thirty major works by Landseer, including None but the Brave Deserve the Fair (private collection), a further ten watercolours, and three pictures by Landseer and Lee together. He also owned works by Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough, as well as pictures from the seventeenth-century Dutch school, including Hobbema, Ruysdael and Van de Velde.

On Wells' death the estate passed to his great-nephew, also William Wells, a member of the Liberal Party and MP for Peterborough, who also inherited Holmwood Hall in Huntingdonshire from his father. A keen agriculturalist he was High Sheriff for Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire and Deputy Lieutenant for Kent. In 1854 he married Lady Louisa Wemyss-Charteris, daughter of the 9th Earl of Wemyss. The couple had no children and the collection was sold by his executors after his death.
