Percy Lancaster (1878-1950) RBA RI RIBA - Early 20th C. Watercolour, Richmond

Item Sold


A fine example of a delicate landscape work in watercolour with charcoal detailing, by the listed British artist Percy Lancaster (1878-1951). This composition is typical of the artists style, depicting a rural landscape with a castle and a bridge by a river.

The artist employs a range of tones and shading to produce a remarkable sense of depth in the medium. The use of charcoal expertly draws the eye to specific areas of finer details, producing a well balanced composition.

Signed in the lower right hand corner with an inscription in the lower left hand corner. Artists information label on reverse. Well presented in a washline mount with a gilt effect frame with fine beading, as shown.

Signed and inscribed. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some very minor discolouration and surface dirt beneath the glazing. The frame contains some very minor scuffed edges. Overall in good condition.
