Girtin Thomas BiographyRomanticism
February 18, 1775 - November 9, 1802 ( 18th century )
Although Girtin Thomas died at young age, he painted quite a lot of paintings. Girtin Thomas paintings mainly consist of landscapes with some architectural scenes. Some of his most noticeable paintings include 'Durham Castle and Cathedral', 'Paris: Rue St. Denis', 'Eton College from Datchet Road' and 'Grand Canal, Venice'.
Girtin Thomas died at very
young age (27); ; the cause of his death was
variously reported as asthma or
"ossification of the heart."
|While still a boy Girtin became friends with J. M. W. Turner and two teenagers were employed to colour prints with watercolors, which was the main use of the medium at that time. Girtin Thomas exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1794. His architectural and topographical sketches and drawings soon established his reputation, Girtin Thomas use of watercolors for landscapes being such as to give him the credit of having created modern watercolors painting. Girtin Thomas went on several sketching tours, visiting the north of England, North Wales and the West Country. By 1799 he had acquired influential patrons such as Lady Sutherland, and the art collector Sir George Beaumont. Girtin Thomas was the dominant member of the Brothers, a sketching society of professional artists and talented amateurs.|
In 1800 Girtin married Mary Ann Borrett, the
sixteen year old daughter of a well-to-do
City goldsmith, and set up home in St
George's Row, Hyde Park, next door to the
painter Paul Sandby. By 1801 Girtin Thomas was a
welcome houseguest at his patrons' country
houses such as Harewood House and Musgrave
Castle, and was able to charge 20 guineas
for a painting, but his health was
deteriorating. In late 1801 to early 1802 he spent five and a half months in Paris, where
Girtin Thomas painted watercolors and made a series
the pencil sketches which Girtin Thomas engraved on his
return to London. They were published as
Twenty Views in Paris and its Environs after
his death. In the spring and summer of 1802,
he produced a panorama of London, the "Eidometropolis",
18 feet high and 108 feet in circumference
which was exhibited with success that year.
