Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock: Day 8
Welcome to the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown, where each night, we’ll be sharing an item from the world-class collections in the Castle’s Galleries in the lead up to Christmas.
Tonight, we’re celebrating local artist Richard Parkes Bonington (1802 – 1828).
Our Art Gallery is home to several works by Nottingham born artist Richard Parkes Bonington. His father, Bonington Senior, was also a painter, but his son found international fame for his English Romantic landscapes. You can find out more about Richard Bonington in the Nottingham Castle Art Gallery.
