HK Foster, Rural Landscape With Worn Track & Family Picnicking

HK Foster, Rural Landscape With Worn Track & Family Picnicking

This late 19th-century landscape painting by HK Foster depicts a well-worn track carving its way towards a wooded area. It’s a few feet deep and dug in after years of attrition. Perhaps it’s still in use today.

Resting by a cluster of trees, a mother and two children are sitting to eat, picnicking in their favourite spot. While above them, a flock of birds bring contrast to a cloudy sky.

Little is known about the artist, HK Foster, but this is a good example of Victorian landscape painting. It’s a celebration of nature.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a period frame.
