Henry Hillingford Parker
Henry H Parker, Highland Loch With Cattle, Oil Painting

c. 1910

About the Item

This early 20th-century oil painting by British artist Henry Hillingford Parker (1858-1930) depicts a Highland loch with cattle, track and mountain. Parker adored the natural world and sought to capture its infinite beauty in all its tangled complexity. He spotted the subtleties that tantalise the eye and produced works with various layers of delight. He was a certain type of British landscape painter who remained resolute to the truth, much like his contemporary Benjamin Williams Leader and indeed the great John Constable. Note the technical prowess on display here. The reflections, which darken by the group of trees on the left and taper accurately towards the distance. And the quickly daubed cattle, each little more than a few marks, yet perfectly described. He’s also given us various ways to enjoy the view. For example, via the mountain, which you can imagine navigating along a winding track. Or via the muddy path in the foreground as it bends along the bank. Or by resting your eyes on the clearing where the animals take water. It’s a fine example of his ample dexterity. Signed in the lower left and held within a handsome gilt frame.

  • Christian Berthelsen, Village Landscape With Thatched Cottage & Storks
    Located in Cheltenham, GB
    This charming 19th-century oil painting by Danish artist Christian Berthelsen (1839-1909) depicts a village scene with storks nesting atop a timber-framed dwelling. Is it simply a gentle portrayal of idyllic family life? Or does it allude to a sinister fairy tale by a well-known Danish author? Berthelsen was born on the small picturesque island of Føhr, where most families worked the land and lived in villages peppered with quaint thatched cottages. Amid these rural communities, children became familiar with various folk stories including those told so menacingly by the author Hans Christian Andersen. In 1839, the year Berthelsen was born, Andersen published ‘Storkene’, a typically macabre tale involving a family of storks. It begins: "On the last house...
