About the Item

‘Morning in North Wales’ by Edwin Henry Boddington (1836-1905). This large fine 19th century oil painting is signed by the artist and dated 1867, in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in London. The painting hangs in a good quality gold metal leaf swept frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edwin Henry Boddington first exhibited in London aged 17 in 1853. Like his father – the eminent landscape artist Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) – his favourite subjects were sunrise and sunset scenes of the River Thames and North Wales. Edwin Bonnington’s work of the 1850s and ‘60s displays all of the fine detail and skilful lighting effects of his father’s best work. In the first 15 years of his career Edwin Henry Boddington exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and especially with the Royal Society of British Artists but after 1869 the quality of his work fell dramatically. A fondness for high living led him into bankruptcy and he was imprisoned for debt and then divorced by his wife. From 1870 Boddington’s work became routine and clearly painted to keep the wolf from the door. Although good prices are still achieved for his pictures after this date, in my opinion the only paintings by E.H. Boddington worth collecting are those executed before 1869. These examples can be very special, and every bit as accomplished as the work of the artist’s father and his uncle, Sidney Richard Percy. The large example from 1867 being offered here is a wonderful testament to what Boddington could achieve before his private affairs got the better of him. The painting comes from the private collection of the Matthews family of Great Witchingham Hall, one of the finest stately homes in Norfolk. Dimensions: (framed) 92cm x 142cm (36” x 56”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 76cm x 127cm (30” x 50”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1867, exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists; private collection of Great Witchingham Hall, Norfolk. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf frame.
