Frederick Hines (1852-1952) - Early 20th Century Watercolour, The Shepherdess
A very fine and tranquil scene in watercolour with gouache details, by the well-listed artist Frederick Hines (1852-1952). With roots in the Victorian period, Hines has a highly recognisable style, and a distinct picturesque approach to composition and palette. This delightful work, entitled 'The Shepherdess', depicts a young lady with a crook, approaching her sheep in a floral meadow. The landscape stretches far into the distance, and the artist has achieved careful focus, instilling a hazy summer feel to the work.
Well-presented in a gilt wooden frame and titled card mount, as shown.Unsigned. On watercolour paper.
In very good condition, especially for a picture of this age. Some light surface discolouration. The frame is in fine condition.

Frederick Hines (1852-1952), known as Fred, was a painter born in Southwark, London, the son of a tin plate maker. He is believed to have been self-taught and was a prolific exhibitor showing at the Dudley Gallery Art Society, Dowdeswell's, Grosvenor Gallery, Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. His work, mainly in watercolour, depicted figures, animals and pastoral scenes and they were often signed as 'Fred Hines'. He also illustrated many works, including one edition of Goldsmith's 'The Deserted Village. Some of his illustrations, small vignettes of landscapes, were used as Christmas cards. The Lytham St Annes Art Collection has examples.
