Description: Forest Creek, Newport Sandbanks, Pembrokeshire Coast inscribed 'FOREST Creek 15 July 82' (upper right); and signed and inscribed 'Newport Sandbank Pembrokeshire Coast/by John Brett/ARA' (on the reverse) oil on canvas 71/8 x 141/8 in. (18.1 x 36 cm.) PROVENANCE with George Hughes, Newcastle upon Tyne. NOTES The present work is a smaller version of one commissioned by Dr J. Watt Black in 1882. The larger oil measures 15 x 291/2 in. and is currently in the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff. Brett is particularly known for his Pre-Raphaelite works of the 1850s, including The Glacier of Rosenlaui, (1856) (Tate Gallery, London), The Stonebreaker, (1857-8) (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool) and Val d'Aosta, (1858) (Private Collection). In 1863-64 Brett visited the Bay of Naples and began thereafter to paint sea pictures and coastal views; in subsequent years he frequently travelled along the coast of the British Isles during the summer months. He painted several pictures of Cardigan Bay including one which was exhibited in 1892 at the Royal Academy. Brett frequently included rocks in the foreground of his coastal scenes which enabled him to display his skills at portraying their detailed surfaces. He was interested in geology and, as a scientist of some repute, was a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He used strict mathematical theory to determine the size of his canvases; the eye could take in a view on a horizontal azimuth of 60 degrees, and it was his opinion that 'all the paintable phenomena in nature occur within an angle of about fifteen degrees above or below the horizon'. This resulted in almost all of his paintings being exactly twice as long as they are high. SALESROOM NOTICE A sketch for this view can be found in the artist's sketchbook, held in the National Maritime Museum.

Description: Val di Cogne, Switzerland dated ÔJuly 30.58Õ (lower right) pencil and watercolour, heightened with white 4 À x 8 ½ in. (10.4 x 21.6 cm.) Provenance: By descent from the artist to his eldest daughter, Daisy Watson, and thence by descent to the present owner. Literature: T.S.R. Boase, ÔEnglish Artists and the Val dÕAostaÕ, Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, 1956, vol. XIX, p. 292. A. Staley, ÔSome Watercolours by John BrettÕ, Burlington Magazine, February 1973, vol. CXV, pp. 86-93, illustrated p. 88. Footnotes:Between June and September 1858, Brett resided at the Ch‰teau St. Pierre in the Val dÕAosta. It was here that he worked on and completed his Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece, the oil painting Val dÕAosta. The view of the present watercolour, executed several weeks before Brett begun work on the oil, looks towards the snow covered peaks of La Grivola, over the Val di Cogne, in the opposite direction of the Val dÕAosta (see Assessovato Regionale Turismo Aosta, Valle dÕAosta, Novava, 1968, p. 35). The present watercolour is different in its style and scale to Val dÕAosta and the related watercolour (see below). Unlike the Val dÕAosta, which revels in a conscious super-realism and a minute attention to detail, the present watercolour has an exciting freedom. The trees in the foreground are loosely brushed in and the mountains rise to a dusky haze. BrettÕs intention was to appeal to the Romantic imagination and experiment with the effects of light and colour. Moreover, the present watercolour reveals BrettÕs love of his surroundings. The present watercolour contends RuskinÕs assertion, articulated after seeing the Val dÕAosta at the Royal Academy in 1859, ÔI cannot find from it ( Val dÕAosta ) that the painter loved or feared, anything in all that wonderful piece of the world. There seems to be no awe of the mountains there...Õ. A watercolour study for the oil painting Val dÕAosta, sold at ChristieÕs London, 14 June 1991, lot 18, (£15950) and a further alpine view, executed in 1856 and measuring 9 ¾ x 14 in., was sold at ChristieÕs London, 27 October 1987, lot 163, (£33000).

Description: Val di Cogne, Switzerland dated 'July 30.58' (lower right) pencil and watercolour, heightened with white 4.1/8 x 8 in. (10.4 x 21.6 cm.) PROVENANCE By descent from the artist to his eldest daughter, Daisy Watson, and thence by descent to the present owner. LITERATURE T.S.R. Boase, 'English Artists and the Val d'Aosta', Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, 1956, vol. XIX, p. 292. A. Staley, 'Some Watercolours by John Brett', Burlington Magazine, February 1973, vol. CXV, pp. 86-93, illustrated p. 88. NOTES Between June and September 1858, Brett resided at the Chteau St. Pierre in the Val d'Aosta. It was here that he worked on and completed his Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece, the oil painting Val d'Aosta. The view of the present watercolour, executed several weeks before Brett begun work on the oil, looks towards the snow covered peaks of La Grivola, over the Val di Cogne, in the opposite direction of the Val d'Aosta (see Assessovato Regionale Turismo Aosta, Valle d'Aosta, Novava, 1968, p. 35). The present watercolour is different in its style and scale to Val d'Aosta and the related watercolour (see below). Unlike the Val d'Aosta, which revels in a conscious super-realism and a minute attention to detail, the present watercolour has an exciting freedom. The trees in the foreground are loosely brushed in and the mountains rise to a dusky haze. Brett's intention was to appeal to the Romantic imagination and experiment with the effects of light and colour. Moreover, the present watercolour reveals Brett's love of his surroundings. The present watercolour contends Ruskin's assertion, articulated after seeing the Val d'Aosta at the Royal Academy in 1859, 'I cannot find from it ( Val d'Aosta ) that the painter loved or feared, anything in all that wonderful piece of the world. There seems to be no awe of the mountains there...'. A watercolour study for the oil painting Val d'Aosta, sold at Christie's London, 14 June 1991, lot 18, (15,950) and a further alpine view, executed in 1856 and measuring 9 x 14 in., was sold at Christie's London, 27 October 1987, lot 163, (33,000).
