designer loves art....Michael Angelo Rooker...142

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.
