John Sell Cotman was an English marine and landscape painter. Cotman was a longtime member, and later leader, of the Norwich School, a group of painters inspired by the Norfolk countryside in the early 19th century. Cotman usually depicted British scenes, but he also undertook several trips to Normandy under the patronage of his friend and former student, Dawson Turner. This painting was probably finished in England, using his travel sketches as reference. The composition is centred on the farm’s building, revealing Cotman’s interest in architecture.
