About

An exquisite 19th century Belgium street scene in Ghent, featuring the imposing St Nicholas' Church surrounded by market stalls and bustling figures. Painted by the highly collectable English painter Samuel Gillespie Prout, famed for his Continental street scenes. Excellently presented in a later gilt frame. Unsigned. On wove paper. Provenance: Ryman & Co Fine Art Dealers, Oxford (old label verso). Another old label verso gives the title and artist. Image Size: 38 x 27cm (15" x 10.6") Framed Size: 56.8 x 43.2cm (22.4" x 17") Artist Biography: This painting is typical of Samuel Gillespie Prout oeuvre. Prout's distinctive European street scenes are instantly recognisable and highly collectable. The youngest of artist Samuel Prout's (1783 - 1852) four children, Samuel Gillespie Prout (1822-1911) was given his mother's maiden name to precede his father's. He intended to follow the family profession of artist and his style was heavily influenced by his father's work. He made a tour of France in 1846 and made some largely unsuccessful attempts to earn a living as a teacher of drawing. His later life was mostly occupied in charitable work. In 1871 he was one of the first to bring relief to starving Parisians after the siege in Paris.
