Hooper, John Horace (1851-1906)

Hooper, John Horace (1851-1906)

Dappled light across muddy lowlands and bending streams with tree-lined canopies - Hooper’s relaxed brushwork captures the special qualities of the British Isles he loved. He was particularly skilled at river views and took great care when rendering foliage, reeds and mosses. 

His landscapes seem to sway - as if a light breeze is passing through just shortly after the rain.

Hooper exhibited several times at the Royal Academy and also at the Walker Art Gallery, Royal Hibernian and Arthur Tooth Gallery.
