Richard Parkes Bonington was a Romantic landscape painter, known for his paintings that brought aspects of English style to France, after moving to France at the age of 14. 

This work looks into Bonington's artistic style and work, and his affluent career that was cut short by his early death.

Collated, complete.

Written by A. Dubuisson. Translated with notes by C. E. Hughes. 

Two pages of publisher's adverts to the rear.
