Samuel John Barnes (1847-1901) - Large 1894 Oil, Woodland Clearing with Sheep

Item Sold


Sulis Fine Art is proud to present a very fine landscape by the well regarded Victorian artist Samuel John Barnes. Here the artist has captured an expansive Scottish landscape with distant snow topped mountains and a flock of highland rams in a woodland clearing. Barnes has managed to convey the distance and the depth of the valley in a masterful way, with a natural colour palette and varying brushstrokes.

Barnes was a favourite of Queen Victoria, she purchased several works from the artist during the late 19th century. A collection of his paintings are currently kept by the Royal Collection Trust.

This fine study is handsomely presented in a large gilt frame with swept corners and scrolling leaf detail.

Signed and dated. On canvas on stretchers.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age. With very minor surface dirt and small scuff marks to the upper left corner. The painting has been cleaned and relined, this has been completed to a very high standard. Overall the condition of the painting is very good. There are small marks to the frame and a minor loss to the lower right corner where a nail has pierced the moulding. However this is very minor.
