Bradgate Park, Leicestershire
This is a fine large 19th century oil on canvas depicting family of dear and rabbits in an extensive English woodland landscape of ‘Bradgate Park, Leicestershire’ by the eminent Victorian painter Edward Davies (1843-1912). This was the very first painting by Edward Davies to have been accepted at the Royal Academy where it hung in the exhibition of 1880. It is sold here in a magnificent gilded and swept frame.
As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having just been cleaned and re-varnished.
Between 1880 and 1912 Edward Davies exhibited 29 oils at the Royal Academy (the painting sold here being the first of these), and many others at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists and the New Watercolour Society in London.
