Charles Daborn (1866-1940) - 1926 Oil, The Woodcutters
A truly striking, early 20th Century arabal scene in oil showing a group of tree cutters hard at work felling and dissecting an old tree. The scene is captured in muted tones with many angular lines and points of interest, creating an honest and simple atmosphere that focuses on the diligence of the workers. The composition of the figures fills the painting with dynamism. The painting holds much influence from Lowry and Stanley Spencer, both of whom were preoccupied with industry, those in it and the land they worked on.
The artist has signed and dated to the lower left corner and the painting has been presented in a substantial oak frame. There is an inscription at the reverse with the artist's name, address and the title of the painting.On board.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There are areas of abrasion and paint loss at the two upper corners.
