All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edgar Barclay studied at the Dresden Academy of Art under Julius Schnorr (1794-1872) before moving to live and work in Italy as one of the ‘Etruscan School’ of expat British artists. Increasingly influenced by the work of the French Realist painter Jean-François Millet, Barclay found his greatest success with beautifully drawn English landscapes of field workers and woodland scenes of young women. Between 1868 and 1913, Edgar Barclay exhibited 42 paintings at the Royal Academy, 64 at the Grosvenor Gallery, and 13 at the New Gallery in Regent Street. Dimensions: (framed) 116cm x 179cm (46” x 70½”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 94cm x 156cm (37” x 61½”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1901; Royal Academy Exhibition. Private UK collection.

Sidney Richard Percy (1822-1886). Signed by the artist and dated 1864, this large fine 19th century oil painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in that same year. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Sidney Richard Percy was the fifth – and most gifted – son of the English landscape painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), one of the most famous families in British art history. Just as his elder 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. Dimensions: (framed) 64cm x 95cm (25” x 37¼”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 46cm x 76cm (18” x 30”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Exhibited at the Royal Society of Artists in London in 1864.

It hangs in a bespoke gold metal leaf frame. All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. 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.

George Cole (1810-1883). The painting - which depicts a vast landscape with waterfall in the Lake District of England - is signed and dated by the artist and was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879. As with all the paintings we sell it is offered in the finest condition it can be for its age having just been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. It is testament to his talent that despite not have studied at a prestigious London academy or the RA schools and being apparently self-taught that George Cole would go on to become one of Victorian Britain’s most successful landscape painters. Cole’s early success as an animal painter found him his most important patron in Sir Robert Peel, whose important collection of Dutch Old Masters no doubt influenced Cole’s development and transformation into a painter of landscapes. George Cole began exhibiting in London in 1838 at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Society of British Artists, of which he would be elected as a member in 1850 and later Vice-President in 1867. Cole exhibited 19 paintings at the Royal Academy, 35 at the British Institution, and 223 at the RBA. Dimensions: (framed) 108cm x 141cm (42½” x 55½”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 86½cm x 122¾cm (34” x 48¼”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879.

As with all the paintings we sell it is offered in the best condition it can be for its age having just been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Between 1850 and 1888 James Linnell exhibited 38 paintings at the Royal Academy.

'The Parting Day’ by Henry H Parker (1858-1930). The painting – which depicts figures and cattle on a country lane at sunset – is signed by the artist and hangs in a good quality giltwood frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the finest condition it can be for its age, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Clients should also note that fully insured, tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Henry Deacon Hillyer Parker studied at St. Martins School of Art and later at the Royal Academy schools in London. Parker specialised in pastoral landscapes of the River Thames and the Home Counties of England. Like Frank Holl, Sir Hubert Herkomer, and Sir Luke Fildes, Parker also worked as an illustrator for the Illustrated London News. Unusually for such a popular and successful artist Henry Parker never exhibited his work in London but instead in the US and Canada, where his work continues to be popular to this day. Dimensions: (framed) 99cm x 137cm (39” x 54”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 80cm x 114cm (31½” x 45”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection.

Edwin Henry Boddington (1836-1905). The painting - which depicts an extensive view of sunrise over a Welsh lakeland landscape - is signed by the artist and dated 1867, in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in London. The painting hangs in a fine quality gold metal leaf swept frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edwin Henry Boddington first exhibited in London aged 17 in 1853. Like his father – the eminent landscape artist Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) – his favourite subjects were sunrise and sunset scenes of the River Thames and North Wales. Edwin Bonnington’s work of the 1850s and ‘60s displays all of the fine detail and skilful lighting effects of his father’s best work. In the first 15 years of his career Edwin Henry Boddington exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and especially with the Royal Society of British Artists but after 1869 the quality of his work fell dramatically. A fondness for high living led him into bankruptcy and he was imprisoned for debt and then divorced by his wife. From 1870 Boddington’s work became routine and clearly painted to keep the wolf from the door. Although good prices are still achieved for his pictures after this date, in my opinion the only paintings by E.H. Boddington worth collecting are those executed before 1869. These examples can be very special, and every bit as accomplished as the work of the artist’s father and his uncle, Sidney Richard Percy. The large example from 1867 being offered here is a wonderful testament to what Boddington could achieve before his private affairs got the better of him. The painting comes from the private collection of the Matthews family of Great Witchingham Hall, one of the finest stately homes in Norfolk. Dimensions: (framed) 92cm x 142cm (36” x 56”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 76cm x 127cm (30” x 50”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1867, exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists; private collection of Great Witchingham Hall, Norfolk. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf frame. All of the new frames we commission are especially made for us to order by one of the UK’s top period frame makers. Condition: Excellent. Newly professionally cleaned, restored, and re-varnished. Ready to hang.

All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Henry Garland entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1853, winning medals for 'Best Drawing from the Life' in both 1854 and 1857.

The painting - which depicts a mountainous landscape above Buttermere in the Lake District – is signed by the artist and dated 1888. Exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in London. Presented in a fine quality, bespoke gold metal leaf frame. All our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edward Henry Holder was a popular 19th century topographical painter whose landscapes of the Home Counties, Lake District, Devon, Derbyshire, Wales, and North Yorkshire show a fondness for river scenes invariably executed with an eye for detail, good colour, and sound perspective. Between 1864 and 1917 Edward Henry Holder exhibited 33 paintings at the Royal Society of British Artists and numerous others at the Royal Academy and the British Institution. Late in his career Holder made an extended trip to Southern Africa to visit the site of his son’s death a few years earlier in the Boar War. Whilst there he produced some striking paintings of Table Mountain and Victoria Falls and, in a pleasing foot note to the artist’s long career, one of these was subsequently accepted by the Royal Academy. In the summer of 1917 – no less than 44 years after Holder’s last picture had hung there – ‘Victoria Falls on the Zambesi, Rhodesia' was shown at London’s most famous exhibition venue.

‘The Heron Pool’ by Thomas Creswick RA (1811-1869).

All of our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved, and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Thomas Creswick studied with Vincent Barber (1788–1838) at the family’s Birmingham Academy and like the Barbers and his contemporary Samuel Lines, Creswick’s work typifies the best of the mid-19th century generation of Birmingham School landscape painters. Having had numerous paintings accepted at the principal London exhibition venues, Creswick moved to the capital in 1827 and quickly earned a reputation as a fine painter of picturesque English and Welsh river landscapes. A subtle colourist and a sound draftsman, Creswick’s work garnered praise from critics such as John Ruskin and popularity with the late Georgian and Victorian art buying public. Between 1828 and 1870 Thomas Creswick exhibited 139 paintings at the Royal Academy, 80 at the British Institution, and 46 with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery.

After training with the Georgian painter William Anderson (1757-1837) – from whom he inherited his characteristic bright colours and soft lighting effects – Tennant went on to enjoy a long and successful career as a painter of coastal and river landscapes. In an era when travel wasn’t easy Tennant journeyed widely, painting highly accomplished scenes of rural life in his native North East, on the South Coast, throughout the Home Counties, in the Channel Islands and North Wales. In 1842, Tennant became one of the founder members of the Society of British Artists, where he would go on to exhibit no less than 340 paintings. Between 1820 and 1873 John Frederick Tennant also exhibited 54 times at the British Institution and 18 at the Royal Academy.

‘In Glen Nevis’ by Sidney Edward Paget (1860-1908). The painting – which depicts an angler fishing at the lower falls of the River Nevis in the Scottish Highlands – is signed by the artist and presented in a superb quality handmade water gilded frame. All our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Sidney Paget began studying at the Royal Academy Schools in 1881. Between 1878 and 1905 he exhibited 18 paintings at the Royal Academy and many others at the Society of British Artists and the New Gallery, but it was his work for The Strand Magazine that was to make him famous. In 1891 Paget began illustrating the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and as surely as the latter gave the great detective his unforgettable character it was the former who provided Holmes with his iconic profile, deerstalker cap, and Inverness cape. Sidney Paget’s international fame as an illustrator would overshadow his huge talent as a painter but his portraits and landscapes are clearly the work of an artist of enormous quality and are as fine as they are rare. Dimensions: (framed) 64cm x 80cm (25” x 31½”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 46cm x 61cm (18” x 24”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection.
