Highland Landscape with Cattle Image

This is a very fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a spectacular Scottish Highland landscape with cattle watering at the shoreline of a loch in summertime by the famous Victorian artist Alfred Augustus Glendening Snr. (1840-1910). The painting is signed by the artist.

Glendening is best known for his beautifully detailed landscape views, particularly those featuring large bodies of water. Perhaps his most desirable works are those depicting magnificent rural views of the River Thames and – as in the case of the painting being sold here – the Highlands of Scotland.

Along with Benjamin Williams Leader and Alfred de Breanski Snr, Glendening became one of the most popular British landscape artists of the second half of the 19th century. Today landscapes by Glendening are arguably even more popular, and in great demand on both sides of the Atlantic.

Between 1861 and 1903 Glendening exhibited 47 paintings at the Royal Academy, together with 77 works at the Royal Society of British Artists and numerous others at the British Institution between 1861 and 1892.

Dimensions: (framed) 89cm x 53cm (35” x 21”)
Dimensions: (canvas only) 77cm x 41cm (30¼” x 16¼”)
Medium: Oil on canvas.

Laird of the Highlands
£9950
Laird of the Highlands Image

This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a magnificent black Highland longhorn bull by the distinguished Scottish painter Joseph Denovan Adam RSA RSW (1841-1896). ‘Laird of the Highlands’ is signed by the artist and dated 1885.

 

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 newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

Between 1859 and 1892 Joseph Denovan exhibited 25 oils at the Royal Academy in London, as well as many more at the British Institution, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Paris Salon.

 

The son of the Scottish landscape painter Joseph Adam, Joseph Denovan Adam would go on to eclipse the achievements of his father becoming late Victorian Britain’s most celebrated painter of Highland cattle. Where others painters of the Highlands such as Horatio McCulloch were content to dot their landscapes with a few cattle Adam gave them pride of place.

 

Adam was a stickler for painting from nature, and had a large studio – part wooden hut, part glass conservatory – built on his house to serve as an all-weather observation base. He called it his “cattle atelier”, and here he established a school of animal painting where he kept many live animals for his students to draw.

The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1871. This is without question the finest work by Pollentine I have ever seen.

 

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 professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

Alfred Pollentine has become famous for his striking landscapes of 19th century Venice. Between 1861 and 1880 Pollentine exhibited many works at both the British Institute and the Royal Society of British Artists in London though his work was in such high demand he never replied upon exhibition sales to make a living.

Saint-Macoux sur la Charente Image

This is a fine original French Post-Impressionist oil on canvas depicting a view of the village of ‘Saint-Macoux’ on the River Charente in the Vienne department of Western France by the eminent Post-Impressionist painter Georges Charles Robin (1903-2003). The painting is signed by the artist and hangs in a fine French Impressionist 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 professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

George Charles Robin studied at École des Beaux-Art, and was a student of Paul Michel Dupuy. Robin travelled and painted throughout France but was particularly attracted to Brittany, Normandy and the Loire Valley. His impressionistic portrayals of these idyllic river landscapes convey their rich colours and enormous beauty.

 

Robin was elected officer of the Académie des Beaux Arts and served as a member of the jury of the Paris Salon. He was awarded numerous major French awards and received commissions from several European heads of state. In the UK Georges Charles Robin has always been represented by the eminent West End fine art dealers Gladwell & Patterson.

Near Betws-y-Coed, North Wales Image

This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting cattle watering at the riverside in an extensive mountainous summer landscape ‘Near Betws-y-Coed, North Wales’ by the important Victorian landscape painter Sidney Richard Percy (1822-1886). The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1873. hangs in a very good Louis XV style swept giltwood 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 professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

Sidney Richard Percy was the fifth son of the celebrated English landscape painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), one of the most famous families in British art history. In my opinion Sidney Richard Percy was its most gifted painter. Just as his brothers Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) and Arthur Gilbert (1819-1895) had done, Sidney Williams changed his name in order to distinguish himself from the other members of the Williams family.

 

Between 1842 and 1886 Percy exhibited at all the leading Victorian art venues showing 76 paintings at the Royal Academy, 48 at the British Institution, and 73 with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery. Today, landscapes by S.R. Percy are in great demand and sell at Sotheby’s and Christie’s, and through many of the world’s most important fine art dealers.

Reaping Image

This is a huge fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting rural workers during a late summer afternoon ‘Reaping’ the harvest in an extensive English landscape of Surrey by the eminent Victorian artist James Thomas Linnell (1823-1905). This major work was exhibited at the Royal Academy Exhibition of 1870. The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1870. The accompanying images (above) show an article discussing this critically acclaimed painting in the Art Journal of 1872.

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 professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

James Thomas Linnell’s style and subject matter was similar to that of his famous father John Linnell (1792-1882). James grew up in the same social circle as his father’s great friend William Blake, and Samuel Palmer, his brother-in-law, who was another important influence on his work.

Between 1850 and 1888, James Linnell exhibited 38 paintings at the Royal Academy, the painting being sold here being the twenty fourth.

The Ford
£24950
The Ford Image

This is a very fine and very large mid-19th century landscape oil on canvas of cattle being herded across a river at sunset by the world famous British painter John Linnell (1792-1882). Entitled ‘The Ford’, this very important Victorian landscape painting is signed by the artist and dated 1858. Such was John Linnell’s success and fame in the first three quarters of the 19th century that a great many copies of his work and outright fakes purporting to be by Linnell were painted.

 

Crucially the painting being sold here can be traced back to the definitive catalogue of Linnell’s known works initially compiled by the artist’s biographer A.T. Story in 1892. Once you have seen and studied a genuine Linnell the fakes become easy to spot. Naturally you will always find one or two of these on ebay, but even those unfamiliar with his work need only to google images of Linnell’s vivid, dramatic landscapes to recognise the real thing.

 

If you were to ask most people today who were the two most famous landscape painters of Victorian Britain they would probably say Turner and Constable. Turner is certainly one, but the other is John Linnell. Prior to 1900, Constable’s work always played second fiddle to the highly charged romanticism of Linnell.

 

John Linnell exhibited at the Royal Academy from the age of 15 and despite initially becoming famous at a portraitist, it was as a brilliant painter of poetical landscapes that prompted both his great acclaim and the resentment of John Constable. Linnell’s confident and forthright nature – especially his readiness to ensure his wealthy patrons paid promptly for the paintings they purchased – never endeared him to the elite grandees of the Royal Academy, but it was malicious and false gossip spread by John Constable that probably help prevent Linnell’s election as a Royal Academician.

 

So successful and famous was Linnell that by the 1860s his exclusion was considered a public scandal, and a panicked Royal Academy repeatedly invited Linnell to put his name down for an associateship. He refused, and instead published a pamphlet attacking the Academy’s exclusivity; a unique and brilliant man, as well as painter.

 

Nevertheless, Linnell was greatly esteemed during his lifetime by most of his peers, and as a landscape artist he was considered second only to JMW Turner. Upon his death in 1882, The Times obituary said ‘A glory seems to have faded from the domain of British Art. England mourns John Linnell, the most powerful of landscape painters since Turner died’.

 

Between 1807 and 1881 John Linnell exhibited 177 paintings at the Royal Academy, and 92 at the British Institution. During his long career John Linnell was a patron and financial supporter of William Blake, Samuel Palmer and the young Pre Raphaelites.

This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a man and his dog walking across an old wooden bridge at Hambleden Weir, ‘Henley-on-Thames’ in Oxfordshire by the famous British landscape painter 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 superb condition. Robert Gallon is one of my personal favourites of the period and this is as fine an example of his work I have ever come across.

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 on a par with that of his contemporary Benjamin Williams Leader.
