David Bates b.1840
David Bates, Forest View With Distant Peaks, North Wales, Antique Oil Painting

1889

About the Item

This late 19th-century oil painting by British artist David Bates (1840-1921) depicts a woodland landscape in North Wales. A young girl sits to rest under the sinuous bough of a leaning birch amid the golden tones of autumnal foliage. An older figure, perhaps a parent, carries sticks gathered from the land. Overhead, the clouds culminate in a bright horizon, which illuminates the distant craggy peaks. Bates loved it here in North Wales and painted a similar view around ten years earlier in 1879. He tended to work directly from nature and returned to this spot on numerous occasions. Signed/dated lower left and held in a splendid gilt frame with pierced corners and centres. David Bates exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, New Watercolour Society and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. He’s represented at the Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum, Liverpool Museum, The Wilson, Cheltenham, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, and the Derby Museum & Gallery among others.
