William Edward Frost
William Edward Frost RA - Mid 19th Century Signed Gouache, The Grape Gatherers



A very fine mid 19th century figurative painting by William Edward Frost RA (1810-1877) in gouache, titled 'The Grape Gatheres'. Painted on wove paper, the upper corners of which have been shaped. Signed to the lower left. Artist Biography: William Edward Frost was an acclaimed Victorian painter who specialized in painting the female nude. Frost studies at the Royal Academy and began his career as a portrait painter before developing his style into historical and mythological studies, typical of the mid-Victorian era. In 1839 he won the Royal Academy's gold medal for his Prometheus Bound, and in 1843 he won a prize in the Westminster Hall competition for his Una Alarmed by Fauns (a subject from Spenser's The Faerie Queene). He was elected an associate member of the Royal Academy in 1846, and a full member in 1870. Frost is widely recognized as a follower of William Etty, who preceded him as the primary British painter of nudes in the second quarter of the 19th century.
