Charles James Parry (1824-1894) - Late 19th Century Oil, An Island Coastline
DescriptionAn evocative and detailed late 19th Century work in oil by the listed English artist Charles James Parry (1824-1894). A study of a rugged coastline, this fine naturalistic view has a remarkable sense of depth, and the artist's choice of a portrait composition allows for greater interest in the natural forms. Well-presented in a substantial gilt wooden frame with acroterion running pattern, inner beading and stepped gilt wooden slip. Signed to the lower left. On canvas on stretchers.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and scuffing. There is a tiny surface loss to the lower right corner. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. The frame has some small losses and areas of surface restoration to the corners, with wear and marks commensurate with its age.
