Alfred Henry Vickers, Coastal View With Church & Cattle

Alfred Henry Vickers, Coastal View With Church & Cattle

This brisk landscape study by British artist Alfred Henry Vickers (1834-1919) depicts a church nestled into rugged coastal scenery. Its beauty arises from its immediacy and it’s probably painted directly from nature. Imagine the breeze arising from the sea coupled with the gentle rhythm of cattle passing before you.

It’s a spot to idle away the hours on a joyous Summer’s day - exactly as Vickers did in the 19th-century.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
