Edmund George Warren was one of the first traditional landscape artists to be influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites.
Edmund George Warren (1834-1909) lived first in London, then later in Devon and was acknowledged as the one of the first traditional landscape artists to be influenced by Pre-Raphaelite ideas of colour, observation and attention to detail. One of two paintings by Warren in our fine art sale on Wednesday, 3rd July 2013 is titled A Devonshire Valley Farm, Autumn Morning, Market Day (FS19/257) and is estimated at £800-£1,200.

The painting shows Pre-Raphaelite influence in the colour combinations of red and rich shades of green and the tonal range from summer sky to a shadowy avenue of trees. The other work by Warren in the July 2013 sale is a watercolor titled Haymaking (FS19/256) estimated at £400-£600, which has equally confident colour combinations and tones.
