A charming late-19th-century depiction of a quaint cottage in the New Forest by English artist, Frederick Golden Short (1863-1936). As the title suggests, the cottage was owned by ‘Mr Lester’.

He exhibited widely during his life including at The Royal Academy, The Royal Society of British Artists, and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters

The painting is inscribed on the reverse.
