This is a large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting swans and ducks on the River Stour at ‘Flatford Mill’ in the county of Suffolk by the popular Victorian landscape painter John Bonny (1874-1948). The painting is signed by the artist and sold in a superb quality newly commissioned, bespoke gold metal leaf 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.
Flatford Mill is today world famous as the subject of one of John Constable’s most famous paintings. A native of Kent, John Bonny also painted numerous scenes of the Suffolk countryside, and his well-executed landscapes of the home counties in Victorian and Edwardian Britain have always been very popular with collectors.
