A large oil on canvas showing children feeding a lamb. A charming highly detailed painting by this Victorian artist. Whilst little is known of the artist other than his unusually long life for the period 1808-1908 his work is however very well listed with plenty high price realisations (record $17k).
Our painting was painted around the mid 19th century when the artist was at his most active.
The painting has certainly had restoration work over its 170 years existence but remains a highly attractive piece in generally good condition. The frame does have several losses.
The work is signed and dated 1847.
