I have for sale a magnificent, English, oil on canvas of a Forester and his faithful dog set in a wintry landscape, almost certainly painted during the closing years of the 18th century, or possibly the early years of the 19th century, by a very talented, unknown artist.
The brooding, overall dark grey sky only adds to the drama of the picture and I cannot help but wonder if this painting was done by the very famous hand of George Morland (b.1763 d.1804). It certainly bears more than a passing resemblance to Morland's many wintry scenes.
The execution of the painting of the Forester's face, (he is smoking a clay pipe), the forester's axe and the hunting knife tucked into his waist-belt have been beautifully done. On his clothing you can make out every button, strap and detail.
Professionally and sensitively restored to it's original, superb, condition and is ready to hang. It is mounted in a substantial gilt frame which measures 32 inches by 25 inches.
