Oil paintings

For many years Buss made sure he had pictures in the Spring Exhibition at the Royal Academy--which was an artist's showcase for prospective clients. Like many other leading artists he also exhibited at the British Institution and the famous Suffolk Street Gallery. A number of his oils were so popular that they were engraved and printed for a wider audience. At present we only have a meagre selection of images of Buss' oils.

The Crowd


DESCRIPTION: Dated 1841. The Crowd. A typical comical Buss scene. The focal point is the sweep who seems unconcerned by all the fine, clean people who surround him. The contrast of his foot with that of the lady in orange occasionbs great hilarity.

PROVENANCE: I know nothing about this piece. I simply found it on the internet here.
