Myles Birket Foster was a well-known English painter and illustrator. He grew up with six siblings in a Quaker family. When he was five years old, he moved with his family to the metropolis of London. There his father x founded the company M.B. Foster & Sons, which specialises in beer bottling. Foster gained his first artistic experience during his training at Ebenezer Landells, where he learned the printing process by woodcut. At that time, this relief printing process was mainly used for book illustrations. From 1846 he worked as an independent book illustrator. Well-known prints from this time were his depictions of realistic scenes from country life and the illustrations for works by Henry Wadsworth, William Wordsworth, Oliver Goldsmith and Thomas Gray. Through his independence, Foster networked with well-known poets and writers of his time, including many well-known authors from England and America. During his work on the detailed illustrations, he discovered his love for depictions of nature and the sea. In 1850, the artist received a commission which also helped him to gain a foothold as an artist in the future, beyond his illustration work. His views of the Rhine appeared in two publications. During his later travels to Italy, Scotland or Switzerland he created numerous landscape and city views. His work includes detailed oil paintings, engravings and colour lithographs. In the 1850s and 1860s Myles Birket Foster devoted himself increasingly to watercolour painting. He taught himself the painting techniques autodidactically. The artist made his works accessible to an interested public at an exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1869 and 1881.

Foster's artistic representations show a realistic and yet dreamy view of country life. He was also known at the time for his landscape representations from Scotland to the Mediterranean. The works of the British artist were widely distributed and met with great public approval, although he was also criticised for his idealised view of country life. From the 1860s onwards, his works of art were displayed on the product packaging and boxes of the chocolate manufacturer Cadbury. The company with British roots still exists today. The former traditional company is now part of the well-known food group Mondelēz International. In 1864 Myles Birket Foster married the daughter of the artist John Dawson Watson. The oldest son of the two was a successful composer and organist. In 1893 Forster fell ill. In his last years he completed further works of art until he finally died in 1899. The New York Times described the artist in a son's obituary as the most popular watercolor artist of his time. © Meisterdrucke
