    DEAR DAVID, This is a wonderful blog. I miss you and our Turner-trekking days! I am so happy to have discovered this blog, just some minutes this afternoon after I finished painting a watercolor version of the 1824 view of the Moselle from the Pallien with the Roman bridge in the distance. A subject so dear to my heart because this was probably NOT the first time he used softcover sketchbooks– as you suggested (back in the days I was living in England) that was on the Rhine– in order to paint color studies in bodycolor and watercolor on grey washed paper while on a continental tour. One of your 2006 photographs was taken on my birthday, April 21st, just as when we were visiting the city of York together on my birthday and cannons were shot (because ERII has the same birthday coincidentally). I hope you are well– you certainly seem busy. Will e-mail you.
    Your friend as ever,
    Mary Tussey Morrell

    Dear Professor Hill,
    I have a painting attributed to Cotman, A view of the thames and Old Westminster bridge. With a part of a letter written in the 1930s pasted to the back explaining that the owner had bought it from Cotman’s Grandson of The Minories, over 30 years previously. Would you be able to help confirm or deny the attribution? My Grandfather bought the painting during the 1930s.

      Dear Mr Hurman
      Thank you for your interest in my opinion. You are welcome to send an image of the work to I do charge a per diem for any research that you might commission, but I only take on attribution projects that have a decent chance of succeeding. I will know straight away from seeing an image.
      All best wishes
