This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a young mother and child and their small dog walking through a meadow near a church and cottage with a silver sea in the background by the famous listed British artist, Robert Gallon (1845-1925). This wonderfully executed summer landscape is signed by the artist and, as with all of the paintings we sell, presented framed and in excellent condition.
Between 1868 to 1903 Robert Gallon exhibited 32 works at The Royal Academy and 27 at the British Institution. One of the finest late Victorian landscape painters, Gallon’s precision and attention to detail is comparable to that of his contemporary Benjamin Williams Leader.
Fine paintings by Robert Gallon, such as the important example being sold here, sell through the finest international auction houses and prestigious galleries worldwide.
