James Peel RBA
James Peel, Along The Wye, Oil Painting

c. 1870

About the Item

This fine mid-19th-century oil painting by British artist James Peel RBA (1811-1906) depicts a picturesque winding view of the River Wye with cattle and fisherman. Distant hills are partially obscured by low clouds. Hailing from Newcastle, James Peel was a distinguished painter known predominantly for landscapes. His approach was naturalistic in style and he was celebrated as an accomplished draughtsman. He was particularly adept at capturing extensive depth with far-reaching scenery and enjoyed the rolling uplands of Northumbria, Wales, and the Lake District. He travelled on occasion with his close friend, Benjamin Williams Leader (1831-1923). Towards the centre, you'll spot several canoeists. Peel’s works were shown at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and the Royal Society of British Artists where he became a member. He’s represented at the V&A Museum. Signed in the lower right and framed. Labels & Inscriptions: An early label from Frost and Reed, Bristol, art dealers, on reverse. Stock number 2429.
