Brougham Castle, Cumberland
About the artist
David Cox the younger was born in Dulwich, south-east London, the son of the more famous David Cox the Elder (1783-1859), one of the most gifted of English landscape painters. As a result, his career was largely pre-destined, although he spent a brief time in the Navy. He accompanied his father on many sketching tours, including visits to Holland and Belgium in 1826. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1827 and assisted his father in his teaching practice until 1841, when he took over the business. Like his father, he drew much of his inspiration from North Wales, although he also painted landscapes of Scotland, the Lake District, the Home Counties and Devon.
