IBBETSON, Julius Caesar
(b. 1759, Leeds, d. 1817, Masham)
Landscape with Travellers1792
Oil on canvas, 37 x 46 cm
This painting depicts a landscape with travellers in a horse drawn carriage and figures conversing by a track. In the rural scene, the artist creates a fine contrast between the frenetic coachman, spurring his horses into a furious gallop and the leisurely exchange amongst the group of figures in the foreground of the work.
