Percy Thomas RE (1846-1922) - 1905 Oil, River View
DescriptionA fine oil painting by the artist Percy Thomas. The scene depicts a river view of Iffley Mill on the Thames in Oxford which burnt down in the early 20th Century. The artist has beautifully captured the tranquil atmosphere of this river scene, natural to such landscapes. Best-known for his etchings, Percy Thomas was also acknowledged as a painter. The monogram 'T.P.' is visible to the lower right-hand corner, which match Percy Thomas' recognised monogram. Well-presented in a distressed wooden frame with gilt effect detailing. Monogrammed and Dated. On canvas on stretchers.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and minor areas of paint loss. There are some very small holes to the centre of the canvas. Inspection under UV light shows no signs of restoration. Some small scuffs to the frame.

Painter and etcher born in Brentford, London. His father Ralph Thomas was allegedly a collector, etcher and friend of Whistler but in fact, he was also a Serjeant-at-law which was the equivalent of a senior judge. Thomas studied under Whistler, Auguste Delatre (1822-1907) and at the Royal Academy Schools under Millais. He was elected Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 1881 and exhibited at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, Dudley Gallery Art Society, Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters and at the Art Gallery. Several etchings by Thomas are in the collections of the Ashmolean Museum, Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand and the V&A. His death was recorded in Hailsham, Sussex and was buried at nearby Hellingly.
