TEXT:
Patrick Eyres. The Brothers: the sketching club, launched by Thomas Girtin and continued by Cotman, that took inspiration from selected landscape poetry.

Each illustration is the fruit of the invitation to ten artists to produce a drawing, similarly in three hours, from the contemporary poem ‘Hard Knott’ by Thomas A. Clark.
