Display caption

Garrard was chiefly an animal painter and sculptor. His oil sketches of landscapes in and around London, painted in the 1790s, were made for his own pleasure or to develop technical facility. They served no very important part in building his art and are perhaps so fresh precisely because of this. This subject is probably Coombe Hill, to the south of Richmond Park.
