'The Parting Day’ by Henry Hillier 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.
