Arthur Ellis
Arthur Ellis, Children In A Cornfield, Oil Painting

c. 1900

About the Item

This beautiful early 20th-century oil painting by British artist Arthur Ellis (1856-1918) depicts children in a cornfield before a distant view of the sea. Ellis was first and foremost a fine draughtsman, studying both at the Royal Academy in London and also in Paris. His skill with a pencil underpinned his success and he was able to master a challenging composition. One of his most famous drawings, ‘A Painter Etcher’, is in the collection of the British Museum. Here, in this lighthearted and joyous piece from around 1900, he’s captured the light beautifully as it falls across a cornfield. Note the girl’s face, partially shaded by the peak of her hat. And the mesmerising blue horizon, bright enough to squint. The scattering of poppies is another success. The perspective handled with great skill. Signed lower right and held within a gilt frame, which is probably original. Provenance: Private collection, England.
