Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding, Landscape With Figures

This charming 19th-century landscape by Anthony Vandyke Copley Fielding (1787-1855) depicts a British rural idyll. It’s carefully observed and rendered by an artist with a deep admiration for the natural world.

Late Summer sun radiates behind a dense copse while a mother and child rest in a nearby field. The foliage a mixture of sun-blushed tones, while the sky brings a spacious relief. It’s a composition of contrasting quarters - the bottom right dense, the top left, airy and light.

Fielding probably sketched this view while enjoying the surroundings. He was an ever-popular Victorian painter who worked throughout the British Isles.

The reverse bears an old Christie’s stencil.

Inscribed on the reverse and dated.
