John Middleton (1827-1856)

During his brief career, John Middleton developed into a landscape painter of great freshness and acute observation. His works show a particular interest in such details of nature as rocky streams and plants and grasses.

John Middleton was born in the Parish of St Stephen, Norwich on 9 January 1827. His father was a painter and decorator and his mother an amateur flower painter who exhibited at the Norwich Society of Artists. Studying art under John Berney Ladbrooke, John Crome and Henry Bright, he befriended a number of local artists. During a sketching tour with Bright – to Kent in 1847 – he produced watercolours of such confidence and freedom that he influenced his own teacher.
