John Westall, Landscape With Figures
A picturesque 19th-century rural scene by listed British artist, John Westall (1823-1894).
Little is known about this prolific self-taught landscape painter due to his often reclusive nature. It is clear, however, that he travelled around Britain and had a fondness for capturing idyllic countryside scenes, often with figures.
This beautiful oil on canvas is a good example of his work.

Craquelure throughout but the paint seems stable. The varnish is a little dirty and we’re happy to clean it free of charge should you wish. We tend to leave this decision to each buyer as preferences differ. Frame with some light age-related wear.
