Life of JAMES WARD


 Advertisements

 
  English painter and engraver. Until about the end of the century he painted mainly anecdotal genre scenes in the manner of his brother-in-law George Morland, but he then turned to the paintings of animals in landscape settings for which he is remembered. They are often dramatic and Romantic in character and their rich colouring was influenced by Rubens (Bulls Fighting, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, c. 1804). His taste for natural grandeur and the Sublime often led him to work on a large scale, as in the enormous Gordale Scar (Tate Gallery, London, 1811-15). Ward had many admirers, including Delacroix and Gricault, but he lived in retirement from the 1830s and ended his life in poverty. His brother William (1766-1826) was an engraver.
