Antique British Landscape Oil Painting of Path through Mountains, 19th Century

About

This is a powerful work. Being of very large proportions, nearly 4’ in height and over 5’ in width, this exceptional painting executed in oil on canvas is an incredible statement piece. The scene is vivid and crisply painted, the styling of the rocks and landscape somewhat unusual in it’s mix of two-dimensional outlining and three-dimensional shadowing, the thin and precise manner in which oil was applied to the canvas leaves hints throughout of the original artist’s study for the scene. The outlining of rocks in the centermost mountain are almost reminiscent of watercolor, the hard edge of the stone exaggerated with more aggressive pigment. The palette is slightly achromatic in a most attractive way. A single dirt path meanders throughout this small valley, a pair of standing figures with their resting companion are followed by a traveler further in the distance. A somewhat timeless work, the scene is bold and vast, it is a very Fine acquisition, preserved in outstanding original condition and presentation, ready for the home. Measurements: [frame] 46" H x 62" W x 4 1/2" D, [canvas] 36 1/4" H x 52" W. Condition report: Original lining, contemporary frame with some cracks and gesso loss (frame overall of very Fine quality and condition). Professionally conserved, surface cleaned in the last decade; under UV showing spots of inpainting to most stones in the large hill and the stone behind the figures, spots of touch up here and there throughout the greenery, touch ups around the edges of the frame; tiny paint loss upper-right corner in the sky; patch to reverse of canvas with associated inpainting. Remaining in outstanding presentation-ready condition.
