James Trout Walton (1818-1867) - Signed 1858 Oil, The Swiss Chalet



A very fine, evocative landscape setting in oil completed in 1858, by well listed British artist James Trout Walton (1818-1867). The detailed and expansive composition shows a Swiss chalet set within a vivid blue lake scene, a miniature figure collecting water to the lower left of the foreground.

The artist has captured the Swiss landscape with a striking sense of realism and detail, casting subtle light on the surroundings. A variety of brushwork conveys both texture and detail; a spectacular and dramatic composition.

Well presented in a gilt slip. Signed additionally on the reverse.

Signed and dated. On canvas.
