DescriptionA large and impressive 20th century watercolour by British watercolourist Charles Edward Johnson. The painting depicts a shepherd with his sheep making his way across a panoramic pastoral landscape. The delicate brushstrokes and soft colour palette truly captures the picturesque scene beyond. Beautifully presented in a swept gilt frame and gilt slip. Signed and dated. On watercolour paper.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. With foxing visible across the sky area and two minor holes to the upper edge, as shown. There are a number of losses to the frame some of which have been filled and retouched.
