George Barker (1858-1911) - Late 19th Century Watercolour, Coastal Grazing



A coastal scene with a flock of sheep grazing in the foreground and a gaff sloop sailing in the middle distance. The composition was perhaps influenced by William Holman Hunt's (1827-1910) 'Our English Coasts' (1852). Presented in a white mount and a gilt-effect wooden frame with ornate floral and foliate detailing. Signed to the lower-right edge. On watercolour paper.


There is some slight debris trapped beneath the glazing and some small scuffs, chips, and areas of retouching to the frame. Overall well-presented and in good condition.


22.6 x 44.5cm (8.9" x 17.5")
Framed Size: 49.4 x 71cm (19.4" x 28")
