Additional Information about the Artist

Stannard introduced marine and river landscapes to the repertory of the second generation of the Norwich School artists after visiting Holland in 1821, where he studied and copied Dutch Golden Age paintings by Berchem and others. He was unique among the Norwich artists in his interest in figure subjects. His other accomplishments included rowing and ice-skating.

Stannard had trained with Robert Ladbrooke, the brother-in-law of John Crome and joint founder of the Norwich Society of Artists.

Stannard first exhibited with the Society, aged fourteen, while still Ladbrooke’s pupil, in 1811.

It was in the 1820’s, after his trip to Holland, that Stannard also developed an interest in etching, though he only produced twelve plates, perhaps because his life was sadly cut short in his early thirties by tuberculosis.

Impressions are rarely encountered, though he did publish a portfolio volume of ten etchings, without title page or letterpress, in 1827.

He taught E T Daniell to etch in 1828.
