Lewis Charles Powles RBA (1860-1942) - Signed Watercolour, Cattle at a Lake



A beautiful and delicately painted watercolour study of cattle watering by a lake, painted by the well listed English watercolourist Lewis Charles Powles. The artist has delicately applied layers of wash to suggest a tranquil summer's day, and add shadows and texture to the cattle. A low line of mountains sits on the distant horizon, suggesting this is a very rural and untouched landscape. beautifully presented in a modern gold frame with pale grey mount. Signed. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and mount burn as shown.


15.4 x 22.4cm (6.1" x 8.8")
Framed Size: 29.8 x 37.3cm (11.7" x 14.7")
