Sidney Yates Johnson, Pastoral Scene With Farmhouse

Sidney Yates Johnson, Pastoral Scene With Farmhouse

A charming early 20th-century pastoral scene by English artist, Sidney Yates Johnson (active 1880-1926). It depicts a shepherd guiding his flock along a muddy track past a beautiful old farmhouse. A few of the sheep seem to be veering towards a pond while the others behave themselves.

Sidney Yates Johnson was born in London but spent many of his years in Kent - particularly Canterbury and Sheerness. His views celebrated the best of British scenery across the Isles and his loose brushwork suited painting outdoors.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower left.
