Additional Information about the Artist

Lucy Brightwell studied etching with John Sell Cotman.

She produced overall about thirty five plates, including a few original landscapes but mainly copies after the old masters.

She made four copies of Rembrandt etchings, all landscapes (an impression of each is included here), and also etched copies of two Rembrandt figure drawings in the British Museum.

She exhibited only once, in 1839, at the Norfolk and Norwich Art Union. The British Museum has a collection of her etchings, as does Norwich Castle Museum, which also own thirty-two of her copper plates.

Lucy Brightwell also made lithographic illustrations to a botanical book, published 1848, written by her father, a solicitor with scientific interests and Mayor of Norwich in 1837. She was herself the author of a number of books, biographies written for the young and others published by the Religious Tract Society.

The other six prints by Brightwell in this exhibition are:
