19th-Century British School, Farmyard Scene With Animals

19th-Century British School, Farmyard Scene With Animals

This charming late 19th-century oil on canvas depicts a quiet farmyard with restful animals. In the foreground, a pig is firmly nestled into the hay - a smile to signify contentment. While above it, a cockerel stands proudly and looks towards a sedate cow.

The artist is unknown but it’s plausible that it’s by someone painting their own farm. It’s a little folky, which adds to its country house charm.

Housed in a fine period giltwood frame.
