Finely painted and very attractive, oil painting on tin panel, of a smuggling scene, believed to have been painted around 1850, by a very knowledgeable follower of the famous painter George Morland (1763 - 1804), who specialised in painting scenes including images of mostly rough and rural characters.It appears to be a copy of the famous "Smugglers" picture by Morland which hangs in the National Maritime Museum and was painted in 1792. The painting is in very good condition for it's years (approx. 165 years old) with only very light craquelure. The frame is in very good condition also with only a few small cracks and a couple of repairs to the lower section. Size in frame: 56cm x 42cm. Ready to hang
