Thomas Girtin grew up as the son of a wealthy artisan family in London. When his biological father died, his mother married a pattern-maker who trained young Thomas in a watercolor painter, where he colored prints with watercolors. It is attributable to Girtin that the watercolor was able to establish itself as a respected art form alongside oil painting. He is one of England's most famous landscape watercolorists.

Even as a young man, Girtin met his longtime friend, the painter JMW Turner, with whom he attended an evening academy under the direction of his patron Thomas Monro. There they made prints of landscapes and topographical sketches. Turner and Girtin quickly recognized the many possibilities of watercolor paints. Girtin traveled through England north and Wales and made romantic landscape paintings. This resulted in the impressive drawings such as "Findlater Castle, Banff", "Lichfield Cathedral", "Interior of the Tintern Abbey" or "Stonehenge during a thunderstorm".

Between 1801 and 1802 Girtin spent five months in Paris, where he made several pencil sketches, which he redesigned into engravings on his return to London. Shortly before his early death at the age of 27 years of asthma, Girtin completed the large-format panorama picture Eidometropolis of the city of London, from which today only precasts are preserved in the British Museum in London. © Meisterdrucke
