Additional Information about the Artist

Lound was another enthusiastic amateur artist of the Norwich School.

He exhibited at the Norwich Society of Artists from the age of eighteen, when he was possibly a pupil of John Sell Cotman, until the Society ceased in 1833.

Professionally he managed a Norwich brewery and was an insurance agent. As an artist, he was mainly a watercolourist and occasional oil painter, but became interested in etching for a few years, c1830 to 1834, producing some eighteen plates. Several of these were drypoints, a technique he admired in Rembrandt, as also in the Norwich School etchings of Edward Thomas Daniell, produced over the preceding decade.

Lound did not publish his etchings, but printed proofs to give to his friends. Impressions are therefore very scarce. In later years, 1845-59, he exhibited paintings in London at the Royal Academy. He also developed a strong interest in photography in the 1850s.
