The Yale Center for British Art describes James Ward as “one of the finest animal, portrait, and landscape painters of Regency England;” a “brilliant and neglected artist” who “worked well into the mid-nineteenth century, creating dynamic compositions that epitomized Romanticism.” As this sketch of a satyr’s head illustrates, Ward’s Romantic sensibilities and gift for expression were as conspicuous in his sketches as in his finished work. Evocative of pagan antiquity and the fantasy realms of C. S. Lewis and George MacDonald, it reflects the more spiritual focus of the artist in his late sixties.
