Edmund John Niemann
Richmond, Yorkshire

About

Niemann’s skill in perspective, design and use of color are seen in this panoramic painting of the River Swale from near the terrace of Richmond Castle. He focuses attention on the play of light and shadow on the land and the river. Because the horizon is located low, he has filled nearly the top half of the canvas with a striking opaque sky and white clouds, and these colors brighten the hues of the land and river and give a panoramic contrast to the green grass in the foreground and the green underbrush and trees. Niemann has located his subject - the Station Bridge - at the left middle of the painting and this lets him give a complete view of the area. The Station Bridge was constructed to give road access to the railway station built in 1846. Designed in the same Gothic Revival architectural style as the station, it was renamed Mercury Bridge in 1975 in honor of the emblem of the 8th Signals Regiment. The bridge was severely damaged by a major flood in 2000 and has been rebuilt. 103 vintage photographs of Richmond, the River Swale and the bridge, dating from 1892 through the twentieth century, are in the Francis Frith Collection.
