All images purchased simply because I liked them, regardless of date or artist.
Dimensions are those of the actual image.
One of many he created of the Lake District and North Wales.
After the style of Frederik Marinus Kruseman, this painting might have been created for a Christmas card, and is of a much higher quality than many such derivative images.
A very private artist, this is typical of his often bleak and stormy landscapes.
A small but very detailed image from this now collectable artist.
One of half a dozen images sold during his first 'one-man exhibition' in Whitehaven.
Another painting of the Lake District, from this self-taught artist.
A typical scene from this prolific artist, with his trademark strong greens and oranges, and lots of detail in the waves.
Purchased in May 2007 from one of the many Bouquinistes on the Quai de Montebello and Quai de la Tournelle in Paris, I have no idea if this is genuinely as old as the fashion it shows, or is a modern design based on older ideas; I assume the numerous staple holes would have held cloth samples in place.
Similar to the paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and John William Godward, this is technically perfect and probably from one of the studios that churn out reproductions of classical images, but even the gallery I purchased it from knew nothing of its origins.
A stunning Art Deco design whose brilliant yellows seem almost luminous.
