Edmund George Warren was born in 1834, and is best known for his depiction of rural English landscapes in both watercolours and oil paints. Having lived in London for several years, Warren later moved to Devon.

 

Warren is often acknowledged to be the first landscape artist to have been influenced by the colour scheme and close attention to detail of the pre-Raphaelites. However this claim was challenged by John Ruskin, who challenged Warren being a true pre-Raphaelite and instead noted his landscapes owed more to ‘cleverly deceptive technique’ than to his observation. His work became very popular in the 1850s and 1860’s, going on to exhibit almost 200 paintings with the Society of Painters in Water Colours.

 

Warren’s work has been largely characterised by his evocative and idyllic depictions of English landscapes.
