Henry John Kinnaird (1861-1929) - Late 19th Century Watercolour, Rural Hamlet
DescriptionA wonderful watercolour depiction of 19th Century rural life. The scene shows a mother and daughter returning to their hamlet down a dirt path, a small pond with geese to the left and thatched cottages curve off down the road to the right. The artist has used a muted palette to add charming realism to the idyllic scene. The artist has signed to the lower left corner and the painting has been presented in a simple gilt effect frame. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and light foxing. The frame has general tarnishing and scuffing, typical for its age.

Henry John Kinnaird was a painter of landscapes and river scenes who was born on 7 June in Old Church, St Pancras. In 1880, he was living in the Camden Town area of London and exhibited a number of works at the Royal Academy including: “The Towpath near Henley”, “The Thames near Pangbourne” and “The Old Mill, Burnham, Essex”.
Henry John Kinnaid also exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. By 1887, he had moved to Chingford in Essex, and by 1908 he had made the move to Sussex where he lived in Arundel before finally settling in Ringmer near Lewes. Kinnaird painted in both watercolours and oils in a broad, naturalistic style similar to John Horace Hooper, however during his lifetime he became a well-known watercolour artist. He often painted harvest scenes (as with this lovely example) in and around Surrey and Sussex.
He died on 26 February at Old Cottage, Ringmer in 1929.
