Description:
PROPERTY FROM A DISTINGUISHED SCOTTISH COLLECTION Hugh William 'Grecian' Williams AN EXTENSIVE VIEW OF THE ACROPOLIS AND ATHENS PROBABLY DEVON 1773 - 1829 EDINBURGH Watercolour over pencil, heightened with bodycolour, scratching out and stopping out 445 by 660 mm Probably Roger Hog of Newliston (1771-1833); by family descent to the present owner In June 1816, Hugh William Williams set off on a wide-ranging journey through Italy and Greece. He visited Rome, Athens, Malta, Sicily and Naples before returning to Edinburgh in 1818. In 1822, he held an exhibition of Greek views, which was received with much acclaim. One contemporary noted that \\\\‘here another Greece grows on the walls… ancient temples rise… As works of art, these watercolour drawings deserve very high praise. We have at once an impressive and satisfactory idea of the country of which we have heard so much.\\\\’1 The tour was of the utmost importance to the artist, securing his reputation and earning him the name \\\\‘Grecian\\\\’ Williams. The present work and the following lot were probably acquired by Roger Hog (1771-1833) in the 1820s and they have remained in the collection of his descendants until this day. Roger Hog lived at Newliston near Edinburgh, a house that his father had commissioned Robert Adam to build in 1789. 1. W.C. Hazlitt, Ed., Essays on the Fine Arts, London 1873, pp. 141-4
