About

Victorian 19th century English landscape oil of figures on a path and sheep George Cole was a painter of portraits, landscapes, and animals. Cole was self-taught and began his career by painting several large canvas advertisements for the proprietor of a traveling circus (i.e. Tiger Hunts etc, exhibited at Weyhill Fair). This success led him to study animal painting more seriously, traveling to Holland to study the Dutch Masters. He devoted himself for some years to animal painting in Portsmouth, exhibiting for the first time in London at the British Institution in 1840. His “Don Quixote” and “Sancho Panza with Rosinante in Don Pedro’s Hut” attracted much attention there in 1845. From 1849 to 1882 Cole exhibited at the Royal Academy, turning to landscapes, mainly in Hampshire Surrey, Cornwall, Wales, and Sussex. His son George Vicat Cole was also a landscape painter and their work is sometimes confused. This piece is framed in its original frame and is signed and dated lower left and also inscribed on the reverse. The dealer's label on the reverse relates to one of the finest English Art dealers. Vicory Brothers were top quality dealers in fine art from the late 19th century through the 1960s. They were known to have only the finest quality art.
