  • Additional Information

‘Above Windermere’ by John Berney Ladbrooke (1803-1879). Ladbrooke painted several scenes of Cumbria and the Lake District in the 1850s. This large English landscape oil painting is 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 professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary.

John Berney Ladbrooke was one of four artist sons of the English landscape painter and co-founder of the Norwich School, Robert Ladbrooke (1768-1842). John Berney Ladbrooke was taught by his father before becoming a pupil of the influential John Crome (1768-1821), who with Wilson, Gainsborough, Turner, Constable, and Alexander Nasmyth was one of the fathers of the British School of landscape painting.

Like Crome, John Berney Ladbrooke’s landscapes are characterised by his detailed depiction of native trees and foliage, and by the frequent inclusion of woodland pathways which frequently lead the viewer into the scene and away towards the horizon.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1821 and 1822, and frequently at the British Institution and the Suffolk Street Gallery up to 1873.
