About the Item

‘Children of the New Forest’ by Edgar Barclay (1842-1913). Depicting two girls gathering kindling in winter woodland, this very large painting is signed by the artist and was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1901. All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edgar Barclay studied at the Dresden Academy of Art under Julius Schnorr (1794-1872) before moving to live and work in Italy as one of the ‘Etruscan School’ of expat British artists. Increasingly influenced by the work of the French Realist painter Jean-François Millet, Barclay found his greatest success with beautifully drawn English landscapes of field workers and woodland scenes of young women. Between 1868 and 1913, Edgar Barclay exhibited 42 paintings at the Royal Academy, 64 at the Grosvenor Gallery, and 13 at the New Gallery in Regent Street.
