James Arundel Massey (1875-1960) - Framed Oil, Impressionist Landscape, Solitude
DescriptionA mid 20th century oil from English painter James Arundel Massey (1875-1960). Massey was born in Bradford and spent the majority of his life and career in the North of England. This fine example of his work displays his confident brush strokes and bold colour choices, with areas of impasto used to create depth in the woodland landscape. The shapes Massey creates in the reflections and rippling waters of the river which cuts through the composition have an abstract nature to them, adding to the successful qualities of the painting. Massey showed at the Royal Academy, Paris salon and extensively in the provinces. The City Art Gallery in Bradford holds a large quantity of his work and gave him a retrospective in 1959. Signed. On board.
A few minor marks to the frame, and some surface dirt. Otherwise in very good condition. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration.
