More about John Glover
John Glover was born in 1767 in Leicestershire and later had great success as a landscape painter. He was very much influenced by the sixteenth century French artist Claude Lorrain and became known in Europe as "the English Claude".
He travelled widely and lived for some years in a house called Blowick on the shores of Ullswater. In 1831 he arrived Tasmania and began to paint the island's very different scenery and aboriginal people. He became famous as the founder of Australian landscape painting.
John Glover died in 1849 at his home in Tasmania. The house was called Patterdale in memory of his time in the Lakes.
