Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers

Description: THOMAS HENRY THOMAS (ENGLISH, 1839-1915)
Oil on board. Expansive landscape scene of bucolic countryside above a still lake, with sheep grazing on a distant hillside and houses emitting blue smoke, a woman in a headscarf kneeling in the foreground to gather water. Gilt frame with detailed relief pattern.

Provenance: From the collection of Lucy and Stanley Lopata, by descent. Sight: 12.25" height, 18" width; frame: 19" height, 25" width

  • Condition: Painting seems to be in good condition but with some varnish drippings apparent mainly towards the bottom. Free hand pen notes on the back read "ME. Schillay" possibly as the gallery purchased(?), and "T. Thomas" to the metal - perhaps as the artist(?).
