About

THE FERN GATHERER - BY WILLIAM SHAYER SENIOR (1787-1879) Period Portraits are proud to offer this fine and highly decorative equestrian oil. It is full to the brim with charming details, like the horses hooves casually at rest, the loosely rendered ferns and pretty highlights of powder blue throughout! William Joseph Shayer, was a self taught artist, who started his career by painting decorations on rush-bottom chairs. He progressed to painting carriages, and after that heraldic painting. When he began painting on canvas and became adroit at portraying woodland scenes, figures and animals. Shayer's works have a depth and brightness that was missing in the paintings of many of his contemporaries, due to his skillful application of glaze (i.e spreading a thin, oily, transparent layer of paint over a dry opaque paint) Shayer exhibited at the Royal Academy (6 works), the British Institution (82 works), and at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Society of British Artists (338 works) This highly decorative sporting oil on canvas is ready to hang in a n antique, mellow gold swept frame.
