English School Rural Scene With Family & Cottage

English School Rural Scene With Family & Cottage

An attractive early 20th-century English rural scene with a family and cottage. In the foreground, a mother is holding a baby while a young child collects brushwood. While in a cottage doorway, an older lady looks on - perhaps it’s the grandmother.

It’s a charming old scene and we particularly love how the country track is lit as it bends away to the right.

The painting is signed in the lower left.

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.
