About

An original British Impressionist oil painting by Charles James Lewis RI ROI (1830-1892). This painting is one of his best. It is a large oil on canvas depicting a haymaking scene in an open and expansive landscape in a stunning and fresh palette. A man harvests the field whilst a woman and a child rest and have a picnic. This is a fine example of a 19th century British Impressionist oil with good subject. The colouring of the landscape is particularly appealing. Signed lower right C J Lewis June 1871. Provenance. Original artists label verso with Cheyne Walk Chelsea address. Gallery frame 38 by 28 inches. Excellent condition. Behind glass. Charles James Lewis (1830-1892) was a popular and prolific painter of genre and domestic scenes. He often painted on a smaller scale depicting natural and attractive scenes featuring children as the focal point. Lewis was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy (1853-1890) and at the British Institute, the Society of British Artists, the New Watercolour Society, Grosvenor Gallery, and the New Gallery amongst others. He was elected a member of the RI in 1882.
