Edward George Hobley ARCA (1866-1916) - 1909 Watercolour, Highland Loch



A highly atmospheric view of Highland peaks with a loch lying in the valley. At the right of the composition, three sheep observe a bird of prey soaring through the landscape. Presented in an exceptional gilt frame with detailed strapwork, acanthus leaves at the corners, and a distressed gold slip. Signed and dated to the lower-right edge. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some slight foxing and discolouration. There has been sympathetic restoration to losses of moulding on the frame. Overall in very good condition.

Framed Size: 59 x 69cm (23.2" x 27.2")

Artist Biography

Edward George Hobley (1866-1916) was a painter of landscape and genre pictures born in Oxfordshire. He was apprenticed to a Bradford draper but was drawn to art and attended evening classes at Bradford School of Art. He subsequently gained a scholarship at the National Art Training School (now The Royal College of Art) in London, and went to Paris to study at the Academie Julian and at L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts. On his return to England, he taught art at the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Penrith, and made his home in Cumbria, where he lived until his death.

He exhibited work at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Paris Salon, Royal Academy, and Royal Cambrian Academy, who elected him an Associate Member in 1903. In 1906 he was also elected to the Lake Artists Society. Examples of his work are in the collections of Bradford Museums and Galleries, National Museums Liverpool, and Shipley Art Gallery.
