RESERVED - British Landscape Study With River Crossing

DESCRIPTION

A 19th-century British oil painting depicting three figures, possibly a family, crossing a river via a felled tree. In the distance, a fisherman is standing on the shore waiting for a catch.

A canvas label on the reverse dates the painting to around 1860-1875, which is quite an interesting time for British landscape painting. During the 1860s and 70s, the French impressionists were having an impact on painting styles throughout Europe and some British artists were beginning to adopt a looser, more casual, style of brushwork.

As you can see, this painting has been created with daubs and broad brushstrokes, which means that this is either a sketch in advance of a possible larger work, or the artist has been influenced by the impressionists. Either way, it’s a very nice little scene.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
