John Sell Cotman
(1782 - 1842)
John Sell Cotman was active/lived in United Kingdom. John Cotman is known for landscape and seascape painting.
Following his three tours of Normandy, in 1817, 1818, and 1820, John Sell Cotman returned to his native Norwich with a renewed enthusiasm for the picturesque Continental townscapes which were so central to the oeuvre of many of his contemporaries. However, Cotman's unique technique of adding flour paste to his watercolor gives his drawings a vibrancy and boldness which sets them apart.
