George Cumberland (English, 1754-1848) pencil on cardstock sketch of a church with adjacent graveyard and two large trees. Signed lower right and dated July 1831. 5-3/4" x 8-1/4". Unframed. Note that a pencil inscription on the mat accompanying this drawing erroneously identifies George Cumberland as the Duke of Cumberland. George Cumberland was an English collector, writer and poet, and one of the earliest members of the Bristol School of artists. Although not royal, he hailed from a wealthy family, and used his connections to help support other artists including his friends William Blake, Edward Bird and Francis Danby. A sizeable collection of his artwork is housed at The British Museum. Also included are two unsigned pencil on paper drawings that have descended with the Cumberland sketch, one depicting ruins and the other a country cottage, both on a single sheet of paper 14" x 9-3/4". CONDITION: Overall toning of paper, otherwise overall very good condition.
