* Thomas Girtin/The Interior of Exeter Cathedral/signed lower left Girtin/watercolour and bodycolour on paper, 44.5cm x 61cm (17.5" x 24")

Provenance: James Moore, FSA (1762-1799); by descent in the Moore-Miller Collection; Christie's 25th February 1916, lot 65 (bt. Leggatt); Private collection, England

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1798, no.538 (Inside of Exeter Cathedral); Manchester, Art Treasures Exhibition, 1857, no.74; London, The Burlington Fine Arts Club, 1875, no.44

Literature: Gentleman's Magazine, 1803, vol. LXXIII, p.187; CF Bell, 'Fresh Light on some Water-colour Painters of the Old British School', Walpole Society, vol. V, 1917, pp.76-77; T Girtin and D Loshak, The Art of Thomas Girtin, London 1954, p.208

Note: This watercolour, among the largest in existence by Thomas Girtin, was shown at the Royal Academy in 1798, a fruit of his tour of Devon in 1797. It was bought by the Cheapside linen-draper and keen antiquarian James Moore, one of Girtin's earliest patrons, descending in the Moore-Miller family until sold at Christie's in 1916./From 1791 to 1795 Girtin worked for Moore, translating his pencil drawings of gothic cathedrals and monuments into more sophisticated watercolours. Girtin based his first important Royal Academy watercolour of 1794, Ely Cathedral (Ashmolean Museum, Oxford), on a drawing by Moore. The following year he showed at the RA his first independent watercolours of medieval cathedral façades, Peterborough Cathedral and Lichfield Cathedral./The interior of Exeter Cathedral reflects Girtin's interest in the sublimity of gothic architecture, an interest paralleled in contemporaneous watercolours by Turner. The play of light on the intricate interior is achieved by means of broad, translucent watercolour washes in blues, greys and buff, with delicate details added over them in a deeper brown with a fine brush tip. Girtin on his 1797 tour experimented with the use of Chinese white (gouache) highlights, evident here in the sunlit ribs of the nave and the east window. The radical playwright James Holcroft, who met Girtin in Paris in 1802, commented that the artist 'delighted in and had studied the Gothic'. The present watercolour, rare in Girtin's work in showing the interior of a building, invokes both the soaring grace and the monumentality of these testaments to Faith./Our thanks go to Susan Morris for confirming the attribution of the painting and writing the footnote

Provenance: From the Collection of Robert and Evelyn Benson. Robert Henry Benson (1850-1929) of London and Buckhurst Park Sussex, married Evelyn Holford of Westonbirt. Benson was a merchant banker with Robert Benson & Co. He served as a Trustee of The National Portrait Gallery and was on the Council of The Royal College of Music. He edited various catalogues, most notably that of the Holford Collection. He and his wife established their own highly important collection of early Italian Renaissance paintings including works by Botticelli, Correggio, Ghirlandaio, Titian and Veronese. One of the treasures from their collection was Correggio's Christ's Farewell to his Mother (now in the National Gallery). Benson also collected English works by artists including Gainsborough, John Sell Cotman and George Frederick Watts. The Benson Collection was one of the finest collections amassed during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
