R Percy, British School Landscape With Stream, Track & Distant Church

A fine mid-19th-century landscape painting depicting a rural view with a stream, track and figures. It evokes the romanticism of a John Constable and provides a window into a time gone by.

A young couple are resting under an old oak tree alongside a babbling brook. You can almost hear the gentle ripples as they cascade over small rocks.

In the distance, several sheep are grazing in a field and there’s a small church towards the centre of the composition.

The painting is signed R Percy in the lower left and housed within an attractive frame with pierced foliate centres and swept corners.
