Myles Birket Foster, 1825-1899, was a British painter, chiefly specializing in watercolour of landscape and rustic scenes in Surrey and elsewhere. In 1859 Foster’s first artwork was exhibited at the Royal Academy. Around 400 Foster drawings were exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1859 and 1881. The artist worked with meticulous finish and with astounding technical skill. At his best he showed a fine sense of composition and command of colour. Under the surface of sentiment and prettiness, Foster paintings lay a hard core of sound and honest craftsmanship. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
