Albert Ludovici Jnr


[In the Rain] 1885
Watercolour over traces of pencil heightened with bodycolour and scratching out
.
1852 - 1932.
Genre painter, son of Albert Ludovici (1820 - 1894). Exhibited at the RA and elsewhere. His pictures show the influence of Whistler, particularly his London scenes, which have an Impressionistic style. He lived, like his Father, mainly in Paris.
Ludovici Jr wrote a book describing his love for coaching pictures and his painting of the Dickens coaching series.
His work was the basis of jigsaw puzzles and prints produced around 1910-11 by Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., London, England , the puzzles listed as “Tuck’s Famous 16 Dickens Coaching ‘Zag-Zag’ Puzzles” after the originals by Albert Ludovici, Jr. and supplied in two sizes, 400 pieces (20″ x 12″) and 150 pieces (12″ x 7″).
