George Hamilton Constantine (1878-1967) - Signed Oil, Coastal Street Scene
DescriptionAn impressive coastal oil painting by well listed artist George Hamilton Constantine. The expressive brushstrokes and post-impressionist feel is typical of the artist's style. The vibrant detail to the cottage roof in the foreground contrasts with the hazy blues of the coast. This gives the overall composition a greater depth which draws the eye down the cobbled streets to the coastline. Fixed to an additional backing board. Signed. On board.
The wood panel is beginning to split, most notably at the centre where the paint has been retouched. There are also two wormholes to the lower and left edges. With general scuffing to the edges and scratches to the lower right corner.
