Paul Sandby Munn (1773-1845) - Landscape Between Netherby & Langholm
  • Paul Sandby Munn (1773-1845) - Landscape Between Netherby & Langholm

    This early work by Paul Sandby Munn is a charming depiction of a bridge on the old Roman route between Netherby in Cumbria and Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway just over the border in Scotland. It is unclear exactly where on the route this work depicts but it is probably close to the English and Scottish border.


    Munn is known to have visited the north of England on various occassions for sketching trips. We have two other works for sale by him which are most likely scenes from the Lake District. This particular drawing is useful because it is dated and shows the level of detail Munn produced in his sketches. Munn would then choose his favourite scenes and work them into completed watercolours that he would display at the Old Watercolour Society.


    Medium: pencil on paper.


    Signed l.l. 'P.S. Munn, Between Netherby & Langholm, July 31 1804', 15.5 x 34.5 cm, framed.


    Condition report: a couple of small foxing marks but overall in very good condition. The frame has a few scuffs to it.
