William Langley
William Langley (c.1880-1920) - Signed Oil, Highland Landscape with Cattle

$1,100Asking Price

About

An impressive later example of listed artist William Langley's Scottish artworks, painted in the late 19th/early 20th century. A commercially successful artist, Langley is known for his romanticized depictions of the British Isles. The textural application of paint and subtle areas of impasto creates compositional tension adding a depth to the landscape. Langley obviously has a penchant for the dramatic. Even his anthropomorphic depiction of the highland cows provoke an emotive response from the viewer. Overall a visually rich characterization of the Scottish Highlands. Well presented in a modern gilded frame with woven detail. Signed. On canvas. Artist Biography: William Langley was a landscape painter who worked primarily in oil and favored coastal beach scenes, rural landscapes and highland scenes, often featuring cattle. His paintings remain popular today. 50 x 75cm (19.7" x 29.5") Framed Size: 59.6 x 85cm (23.5" x 33.5")
