Circle of Edward Harrison Compton (1881-1960) - Early 20th Century Oil, The Alps



A fine landscape painting reminiscent of work by Edward Harrison Compton (1881-1960). Depicting a dominating alpine mountain and traditional chalet the strong composition is definitely influenced by Compton's own fine handling of light and tone. Well presented in a gilt effect frame. Indistinctly signed to the lower left. On canvas board.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some surface dirt. There are scattered flakes of paint loss to the edges. Minor marks to the frame. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration.


32.5 x 22.4cm (12.8" x 8.8")
Framed Size: 43.5 x 32.3cm (17.1" x 12.7")
