John Robert Cozens (1752-1797)

Cozens was a British draftsman and romantic landscape painter. He was taught by his father, Russian born watercolourist, Alexander Cozens and much of his work was executed during and as a result of two long trips to the Continent. Thomas Girtin and J M W Turner looked to his work for inspiration and Constable called him ‘the greatest genius that ever touched landscape‘.
