Item Sold


An extremely fine autumnal example of the masterly study and depiction of trees by the artist Oliver Hall RA RE RWS (1869-1957). An impressive study of the effects of sunshine and shadow on a lane at Bandsea Forest, Cumbria, England. The painting is well-presented in a substantial painted wood and composition frame with textured mouldings, likely to be the original frame. With the artist's handwritten label to the reverse reading 'For R.A. Early Spring, Bardsea Forest. By Oliver Hall R.A.'. Signed and incsribed on the reverse. On canvas on stretchers.


In good condition overall, for a picture of this age. There are some small paint losses to the surface, which have been previously restored. These are mainly to the lower left. Minor wear and some stable cracking to the frame.
