Ebenezer Wake Cook (1843-1926) - Lago Di Garda
  • Ebenezer Wake Cook (1843-1926) - Lago Di Garda

    After returning to England from Australia in 1873, Ebenezer Wake Cook began to exhibit at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists. This view of Lake Garda comes from one of his later tours to the continent. It surely has been inscribed incorrectly as 'River, Lago di Gaudo'. Cook later became the president of the Langham Sketch Club.


    Medium: Pencil and watercolour on paper.


    Signed lower left 'E Wake Cook', 18 x 30.5 cm, framed.


    Provenance: Heather Newman Fine Art; and likely Christie's 24 October 1984, lot 146 'Riva, Lago di Garda'.
