Tomb in the Crypt of Arundel Castle, by Samuel Rayner.⁠ 🎨 A great masterpiece of the watercolor technique! An impressive representation of light and texture inside the English gothic castle. It was established by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas Day 1067. Roger became the first to hold the earldom of Arundel by the graces of William the Conqueror. The castle was damaged in the English Civil War and then restored in the 18th and 19th centuries by Charles Howard the 11th Duke of Norfolk. From the 11th century, the castle has been the seat of the Earl of Arundel and, for over 400 years, the Duke of Norfolk. An inspiring glimpse indeed!⁠ 🧑‍🎨 Samuel Rayner (English, 1806-1879) was a landscape artist, known for his paintings of buildings and their interiors, particularly abbeys, churches and old mansions. His success in life was remarkable: he got a work accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy at the age of 15. The literary influence of his fellow student George Cattermole was a critical inspiration during his life. Samuel and his wife Anne founded a family of painters in own right: six of their children went on to be professional artists.⁠ 📐 Height: 45 cm (17.7 in). Width: 63.2 cm (24.8 in).
