Nicholas Pocock O.W.S. (1740-1821) - Boy Playing the Flute
  • Nicholas Pocock O.W.S. (1740-1821) - Boy Playing the Flute

    This charming drawing of a young boy playing a flute shows the breadth of of Pocock's oeuvre. Although predominantly known for his dramatic marine paintings often of British naval battles Pocock was also adept at watercolour painting and became a founding member of the Old Watercolour Society. He enjoyed figure painting and often sketched his family or friends. This suggests that the young boy could be one of his children.
