George Chambers, 1803-1840 : his life and work : the sailor's eye and the artist's hand by Alan Russett( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chambers' work is remarkable for its equal mastery of oils and watercolours, in a range of marine-related subject-matter. After early periods as a panorama and theatrical scene painter, his work falls into three main thematic groups. The first group, which best expresses his romantic spirit, comprises works from nature in which he sought to capture and interpret its moods through depiction of sea and sky, ships, boats and people. People were important to him and always figure in his scenes. The second group, waterside views, vary from peaceful scenes or riverside buildings with people about their tasks to crowded royal celebrations such as 'The Opening of London Bridge'. The third group is perhaps his best known - paintings of naval engagements commissioned by naval commanders, his most important for the Greenwich Hospital Gallery. The biographical narrative quotes his close friend, John Watkins
