When John Crome was buried in St. George's Church in Norwich in the spring of 1821 at the age of only 53, his friends and students were mourning the death of one of the most important landscape painters in English art history. As a talented and imaginative young man, Chrome had come to painting rather casually. At the age of twelve, he had first worked as a messenger for a doctor before he trained as a sign painter. His first "works of art" were inscriptions for cottages, pubs and colourful decorative panels for horse-drawn carriages. He made friends with Robert Landbrooke, an apprentice printer, who later became a recognized landscape painter. A common hobby soon developed. The two young men roamed the idyllic landscape of the surrounding county of Norfolk, sketching grasses, flowers and trees. Some of the works were so successful that Robert Landbrooke's boss bought the paintings to print them in larger editions.

John Chrome was a real autodidact, instead of studying art, he taught himself all the techniques. A great help was a colleague of Robert Landbrooke, who owned a large collection of prints of well-known paintings. John Chrome copied paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, the Dutchman Meindert Hobbema and other great painters. It was during this period of groping and trial and error that he met the London portrait painter William Beechey, who gave him important assistance. The talent of the up-and-coming painter Chrome was so great that he earned his living by teaching drawing to private pupils. At the age of 24 he was so successful with it that he could start a family. He married his wife Phoebe and in the course of time eight children grew up. Two of them, John Berney and William Henry, were later to become famous painters.

Crome and Ladbrooke were not only talented, but also had a vision. In the early 19th century, they jointly founded the Norwich Society of Artists. Their first exhibition in 1805 is considered an important date in English art history. It was the birth of the Norwich School of Painters, the first strong art movement to establish itself outside the metropolis of London. The Norwich School of Painters oriented itself towards the "Golden Age of the Netherlands". It took up the painting style of such great Dutch painters as Esaias van de Velde, Jacob van Ruisdael, or Aelbert Cuyp and interpreted this style in a new way.

Despite these European influences John Chrome remained a very down-to-earth contemporary. He travelled only occasionally to London, 120 miles away, and exhibited once at the Royal Academy there. Only once in his life did he travel to Paris. It was an impressive journey with numerous artistic inspirations. In the months after his return, he produced a series of paintings with Parisian scenes and views of the port cities of Boulogne and Ostend. Today, 200 years after his early death, his works have become immortal. His paintings fill the halls of major museums, they hang in the Tate Gallery and the Royal Academy in London, among others. A large part of his work can be admired in his home town, in the Norwich Castle Museum. © Meisterdrucke
