"Over the Brook" - painted by G. Chester, from the Exhibition of the Society of British Artists, 1857. Engraving of a paintitng. The lines by Mr. Mark Lemon, which accompany the title of the painting in the Catalogue are so appropriate and suggestive that we cannot do better than quote them: "Over the brook, Mary; over the brook! There are no other eyes near but mine to look. Thy autumn's brown burthen I'll carry for thee, And a smile and a word shall be payment to me". We scarcely know why, but the incident of crossing a brook is an extremely favourite subject with both poets and artists...The buxom lassie in our picture is certainly in all respects an excellent specimen of country comeliness, and rustic health and strength'. From "Illustrated London News", 1857

Over the Brook

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating painting by the talented British artist, G. Chester, which was showcased at the Exhibition of the Society of British Artists in 1857. This engraving of the painting, created by M. Jackson, offers a detailed and intricate rendering of Chester's original work. The scene portrays a young woman, brimming with rustic charm and health, helping a man to cross a brook. The serene and picturesque setting, with the golden leaves falling gently into the clear water, creates an idyllic atmosphere that transports the viewer to a simpler time. The title of the painting is accompanied by a poem by Mark Lemon in the Catalogue, which beautifully encapsulates the essence of the scene. The poem reads, "Over the brook, Mary; over the brook! There are no other eyes near but mine to look. Thy autumn's brown burthen I'll carry for thee, And a smile and a word shall be payment to me." The poem adds a romantic and poetic dimension to the painting, making it an even more enchanting work of art. The depiction of the buxom lassie in the painting is a testament to Chester's skill in capturing the essence of country comeliness. Her robust and healthy appearance is a celebration of the simple pleasures of rural life, making "Over the Brook" a timeless masterpiece that continues to captivate and inspire. This engraving, by M. Jackson, offers a faithful representation of Chester's original work, allowing us to appreciate the intricacies and details of this beautiful painting.
