Nicholas Pocock O.W.S. (1740-1821) - St Vincent Rocks, Clifton
  • Nicholas Pocock O.W.S. (1740-1821) - St Vincent Rocks, Clifton

    Nicholas Pocock became one of the founding members of the Old Water-colour Society (now RWS), and this work is an early example by him from the 1770s. Pocock almost predominantly drew upon Bristol and its surroundings as his inspiration for his compositions when he was not working upon large naval battle oil paintings. This drawing depicts the River Avon meandering towards Bristol harbour. It shows St Vincent Rocks in Clifton near to Hotwells, with the Giant's Cave obvious to the left of the picture. Today, this view would look rather different with the Clifton Suspension Bridge joining both landmasses together.
