19th-Century Stormy Landscape With Estuary

19th-Century Stormy Landscape With Estuary

An expressive 19th-century landscape painting depicting a stormy view across an estuary towards the sea. The artist has captured a moment whereby the sun is beginning to appear through the thick low-lying rain clouds. The trees are windswept, the ground is flooded, yet the storm appears to be passing.

We particularly love the brushwork, which is reminiscent of an oil sketch by John Constable.

The painting is housed within a beautiful period frame with foliate decoration and swept corners.
