Additional Information about the Artist

Jane Worship was a pupil of John Sell Cotman, who was based in Yarmouth 1812-1823 and ran a drawing school after he settled back in Norwich in 1824.

Her father Harry Verelst Worship, a lawyer, was a friend and the executor of Dawson Turner, a linchpin figure in the history of the Norwich School.

Most of Janeís prints (she probably made fewer than ten) were etched between 1838 and 1842, after she with her family had moved to Oulton, just north of Norwich. There she met Bowyer Vaux, acting curate at Heathersett, a village to the west of Norwich.

In 1846 he was appointed vicar of St Peterís Church in Yarmouth and they married in 1849, after which she presumably did not continue to etch.

The British Museum has examples of seven of her etchings, all purchased from James Reeve, a collector of artists of the Norwich School and Curator of Norwich Castle Museum from 1851 to 1910 .
