Tree Study

Description
Widgery is well-known throughout Devon for his extraordinary sketch collection - consisting of 500-600 works - which he bestowed upon the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in the occasion of his death. These pencil and crayon sketches were done for study as well as for leisure. They range to anything from the Devonshire landscape to studies of light and shadow as well as sketches of a variety of animals. Not widely known for his etching, Frederick John Widgery nonetheless produced some etchings in accordance with his art school curriculum at Antwerp.
