Joseph Paulman, River Landscape With Boatman

Joseph Paulman, River Landscape With Boatman

This peaceful 19th-century landscape painting by British artist Joseph Paulman depicts a river landscape with moored boat. It evokes the tranquillity of a day resting in the picturesque English countryside.

The landscape is flat and marshy with an abundance of reeds jutting from the river. It’s reminiscent of the marshland scenery encountered in Suffolk or Norfolk. And atop the far-reaching view, the sky is particularly profound with a large rain cloud giving way to a crack of light blue.

Signed in the lower right and held within a splendid later frame with pierced corners and centres.
