A View on Hampstead Heath, looking towards London
About the artist
Landscape artist Francis James Sarjent was based in London. He gave his address as '10, Howland Street' (off Tottenham Court Road), when he exhibited two works at the Royal Academy in 1802 and 1803. They were titled 'View of the city of London from the fields below Hampstead' and 'A View of Woolwich, looking down the river'. A watercolour by Sarjent was sold through Christie's, London, in 1987 and two further watercolours by the artist were sold through Sotheby's, London, in 1985 and 1994.
