Sidney Richard Percy
Betws-y-Coed, North Wales - 19th Century Oil Painting - Sidney Richard Percy

1873

About

This is a very fine large 19th century oil on canvas depicting cattle watering at the riverside in an extensive mountainous summer landscape ‘Near Betwys-y-Coed, North Wales’ by the important Victorian landscape painter Sidney Richard Percy (1822-1886). The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1873, and hangs in a very good Louis XV style swept giltwood frame. 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. Sidney Richard Percy was the fifth son of the celebrated English landscape painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), one of the most famous families in British art history. In my opinion Sidney Richard Percy was its most gifted painter. Just as his brothers Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) and Arthur Gilbert (1819-1895) had done, Sidney Williams changed his name in order to distinguish himself from the other members of the Williams family. Between 1842 and 1886 Percy exhibited at all the leading Victorian art venues showing 76 paintings at the Royal Academy, 48 at the British Institution, and 73 with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery. Today, landscapes by S.R. Percy are in great demand and sell at Sotheby’s and Christie’s, and through many of the world’s most important fine art dealers. Dimensions: (framed) 116cm x 91cm (45½” x 36”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 96cm x 61cm (38” x 24”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection. Presentation: Good 20th century Louis XV giltwood swept frame. Condition: Excellent. Newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Ready to hang.
