Leopold Rivers
Harvesters in a Coastal Landscape - British art 19th century oil painting

Circa 1897

About

This absolutely charming Victorian oil painting is by British artist and prolific exhibitor Leopold Rivers. Indeed our painting may have been exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1897 no. 1169 as Harvest Time. The wonderful soft focus and muted tones make this painting really pleasing to the eye. The subject matter is harvest time in a coastal landscape. Workers load the harvest onto the horse and cart and a village with its church spire nestles to the right and the sea behind. A really tranquil pastoral scene and an excellent example of Rivers work. Signed lower left. Housed in an ornate frame, 38 inches by 28 inches and in good condition. Provenance. Sussex estate. Leopold Rivers (1850-1905). Rivers was a London born landscape painter, son and pupil of the marine painter William Joseph Rivers. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1890 and the Royal Academy in 1873. His painting of "Stormy Weather", was at the Tate gallery in London in 1892. He was a prolific exhibitor throughout his career. Exhibited: Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham 11, Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts 2, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool 7, Manchester City Art Gallery 10, Royal Academy 55, Royal Society of British Artists 188, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours 31, Royal Institute of Oil Painters 24.
