Samuel R. Meyrick Wall Art

Samuel R. Meyrick (Born 1783) was a collector from England. He lived at Herefordshire, England, Goodrich Court, Goodrich, and introduced the systematic study of armor and arms. He was to Hannah and John Meyrick. John (his father) had been a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries and an officer in the Honorable Artillery Company. In 1803, Meyrick and Mary Parry eloped to Wales against the wishes of his parents. This made him to be cut out of his father’s will and he was forced to live on a petite allowance. Meyrick inherited from his father his strong love for collecting antiquities including armor and arms and, in 1810, he was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquities. After the death of his wife, he focused on building the Meyrick collection using a series of acquisitions from other collections His art is licensed in his country and also abroad.

He produced art that depicts his respect and love of nature, and his sense of humor regarding the more domestic variety. It is his use of embellishments and his attention to detail that made his art unique. Whether he’s in his studio working from the many photos he’s taken or in his own living room photographing and sketching the antics of his own subjects, he’s always amazed and appreciative of the creatures that nature had to offer. He used to say that his gift in his lifetime is that of an artist. And so for him, the best way to show his appreciation of subjects that he so much cherished was to depict them in the best way he could.
