This is a very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a flock of sheep grazing in a meadow in ‘Summertime’ by the Royal Academy artist Joseph Dixon Clark Snr. (1849-1944). This late Victorian oil painting is signed by the artist and hangs in a good quality Louis XIV style swept frame. This is without question the finest work by this artist I have 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, lined, and re-varnished.
A landscape painter specialising in rural English scenes featuring cattle and sheep, Joseph Dixon Clark – known simply as Dixon Clark – exhibited five oils at the Royal Academy in London between 1890 and 1902.
