some artist go relatively unperceived yet, they inspire other artist which in turn become well known
this is Michael Angelo Rooker
from England, and son of a known engraver of the time. we went to study in the royal academy, and although he didn't pursue a career as an academic. he was recognized as associate academician. during his summers he would go on tours around England searching for important sites or ruins for him to paint. much of his work is done in water color, and some of this sketches n pencil. it is thought that his work inspired Turner who emulated his technique in composition, light and texture.
