William Wells Quatremain (about 1858 to 1930)
Old Clopton Bridge, Stratford upon Avon
Old Clopton Bridge, which has fourteen arches, was built about 1490. It still carries the main road over the River Avon.
William Quatremain also painted some views of Stratford for a popular booklet entitled ‘Shakespeare’s Stratford-on-Avon’ by J. Salmon, Art Printer, Sevenoaks. Quatremain had a bicycle adapted to carry his paint box, easel and stool.
This watercolour and many others will be on display in Wonderful Watercolours: Views of Coventry and Warwickshire. The exhibition runs from 25 February to 22 July 2012 at the Herbert. Entry is free.
