George Cuitt. .

George Cuitt (1779-1854). After showing in early life a talent for drawing, he was helped by Sir Laurence Dundas of Aske, who sent him to Rome, where he studied for six years. On his return he settled at Richmond, where he painted both landscapes and portraits but settled later in Chester. He etched old buildings esp castles and abbeys in Yorkshire, Chester and North Wales. Cuitt studied Piranesi's etchings of Rome and it is clear how much his style is influenced by Piranesi in subject matter and with the ruins covered with thick vegetation. He etched several series of studies in the early 19th century. These were also collected and published together under the title of 'Wanderings and Pencillings amongst the ruins of Olden Times'in 1848. These are Etchings from his book on Yorkshire Abbeys all large plate mounted and matted full page with full margins etc " Views of Old Buildings in Chester and Yorkshire Abbeys " , 1834 .Those shown unmounted are from the same plates but from the 1848 publication "Wanderings and Pencillings " ie second edition and are £25 each
