Hector Caffieri

Hector Caffieri, 19th century painter in oils and watercolors
Hector Caffieri was a British painter active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Though adept at both oil and watercolor, he is known primarily as a watercolorist.

His refined, academic style is sometimes tinged with hints of Impressionist color, but his approach is largely straightforward. His subjects included still life and interiors, but most frequently were of figures in landscapes.

I particularly like his handling of the textures of woodland scenes.
