Footnotes

  • Exhibited: Michael Spratt 'Norwich School Watercolours', marking the bicentenary of John Sell Cotman, October 1982.

    Robert Dixon moved to Norwich in 1800 after studying at the Royal Academy, where he exhibited in 1798. In Norwich he worked for the Theatre Royal and established himself as a drawing master and ornamental and decorative painter. He first showed with the Norwich Society in 1805, becoming a member in 1806 and their Vice President in 1809. Dixon's strong sense of pattern contained by outline and limited palette of bright washes, shows the influence of Cotman, as well as Dixon's fondness for picturesque rural architecture. Like so many of his Norwich School contemporaries, Dixon died prematurely at the age of 35.
