Arthur Suker (1857-1940) - Signed Late 19th Century Watercolour, Rural Landscape

Item Sold


A fine late 19th century watercolour landscape by the British artist Arthur Suker (1857-1902). The composition has been wonderfully thought out, with delightful details hidden within the scene. The figure of a lady fetching water from the pond can be seen walking towards the distant cottage, while ducks gather at the edge of the water. This is a fine example of Suker's work which perfectly captures the idyllic nature of the English countryside. Well presented in an ornate gilt frame. Signed with monogram. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and minor foxing. There are cracks to the moulding of the frame. With some very small minor losses to the frame, at the lower right corner. Overall the condition is good.


39 x 59.5cm (15.4" x 23.4")
Framed Size: 47 x 68cm (18.5" x 26.8")

Artist Biography

Arthur Suker was born in 1857 at Tranmere, Cheshire. He was the son of John Suker, a landscape painter and the brother of F.C. Neweombe and first cousin of W. Crane. By 1871 Suker is recorded as living with his large family in Birkenhead. He married Emily Tomlinson in 1881, in their early married life they appear to have moved around many times, living in Chester, Liverpool and Surrey, before settling in Cornwall by 1890. Arthur is listed in the 1891 Census as an 'Artist-Landscape Painter'. He exhibited a few paintings at the RA in the late 19th century. By 1901 Suker had moved to Brixham and continued to live there until his death aged 85.
