Lot 350


Thomas Shotter Boys, NWS, 
British 1803-1874- 

View of the Thames towards Battersea Bridge, showing the construction of Chelsea Bridge; 

pencil and watercolour on paper, signed with initials 'TB' (lower left), inscribed 'Battersea Church' and 'Chelsea Church', 5.6 x 19 cm. 

Anon. sale, Sotheby's, London, 11 July 1985, lot 74. 
with The Bell Gallery, Belfast. 
Private Collection, UK. 

Shotter Boys worked as a watercolourist and engraver over the course of his career and was heavily influenced by Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-1828). 
Chelsea Bridge was built by the civil engineer Thomas Page (1803-1877). He was commissioned to design the bridge in c.1846 and the building was completed in 1858. The present work, showing a dredger at work in the initial stages of the project, probably dates from the late 1840s. 
Shotter Boys has depicted a west-facing view along the Thames, looking towards the construction of the bridge which was replaced in the early 20th century by the current bridge.
