William Marlow Paintings in

William Marlow (1740-1813) painted scenes across England and in some of the top tourists sites in Italy, with some views of the south of France thrown in.  His works are usually focused on a prominent man-made structure but with lots of sky and water included.  The skies are never a brilliant blue but cast a mood on the works, a sort of other-worldly backdrop that puts the accomplishment of man in a context.  Perhaps he brought the weather with him, but his Italian views are no more sunny than those
