John Glover,

WAG 788

About this object

Glover exhibited a watercolour view of Ullswater nearly every year at the Old Watercolour Society (now the Royal Watercolour Society) between the years 1806 and 1816. He later owned a farm in the area during the 1820s. This work was probably made during this period and before his departure for Australia in 1831.
