William Redmore Bigg
(English, 1755–1828)
The Reprimand
Oil on panel, 18 1/2 × 24 inches

This rural interior is typical of the anecdotal scenes of village life that William Redmore Bigg produced prolifically for an enthusiastic middle-class audience. Of the dozens of paintings he exhibited at the Royal Academy in London between 1780 and his death in 1828, approximately two thirds, like this work, depict the lives of “cottagers.” Many of his paintings were engraved, making them available to an even wider audience. Bigg studied at the Royal Academy in 1778; he became an Associate of the Academy in 1787 and an Academician in 1814. His paintings are in the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
