About

This is a huge fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting rural workers during a late summer afternoon ‘Reaping’ the harvest in an extensive English landscape of Surrey by the eminent Victorian artist James Thomas Linnell (1823-1905). This important work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1870. The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1870. The accompanying images (above) show an article discussing this critically acclaimed painting in the Art Journal of 1872. 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 and re-varnished. James Thomas Linnell’s style and subject matter was similar to that of his famous father John Linnell (1792-1882). James grew up in the same social circle as his father’s great friend William Blake, and Samuel Palmer, his brother-in-law, who was another important influence on his work. Between 1850 and 1888, James Linnell exhibited 38 paintings at the Royal Academy, the painting being sold here being the twenty fourth. Dimensions: (framed) 168cm x 113cm (66” x 44½”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 158cm x 102cm (62¼” x 40”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection. Presentation: Original 19th century giltwood frame with gadrooned border ornamentation. Condition: Excellent. Newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Ready to hang.
