Edward Ladell - Still Life (British artist, 1821-1886)

Edward Ladell was a British still-life painter. Little is known of his personal life. Born in Colchester, he spent his early teens working for his father who was a respected coach builder. After many years working in Colchester, he moved to the West Country, eventually settling in Exeter. Although he was an entirely self-taught artist, he developed a very distinct style of still-life most certainly drawn from the Dutch tradition. Ladell’s paintings have a Victorian richness of colour. It makes them instantly recognisable, and his consistent high quality has ensured their continued popularity. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1856 to 1886. Examples of his work can be seen today in art galleries of Bristol, Colchester, Exeter, Harrogate, Reading and Sheffield.
