About

William Meadows British, (1825-c1901) Bridge of Sighs, Venice & Church of the San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice Oil on board, pair, both signed Image size: 7.75 inches x 12.25 inches Size including frame: 13.75 inches x 18.25 inches William George Meadows was born in Mountnessing, Essex in 1825, the son of the artist James Meadows Snr (1788-1864). He was the brother of the James Edwin Meadows (1828-1888), Alfred John (1833-1894), Edwin Lewis Meadows (1838-1907) and Arthur Joseph Meadows (1843-1907) who were also artists. His grandfather and namesake William Meadows, was an actor and tenor singer. Meadows was tutored by his father and initially found work with him as a scene painter in the London theatres. He lived in St Pancras and Hampstead and also lived in Poole. He spent most of his life painting the views of Essex, London and Dorset but also travelled around painting views of the South Coast and Scotland. He spent time in Venice producing a number of highly skilled works of the canals and famous landmarks such as these fine examples. Although he does not appear to have exhibited at the London galleries he did exhibit at the Royal Hibernian Academy. Examples of his paintings can be found in a number of public collections including the Doncaster Mansion House, Gainsborough Old Hall, Milntown House and Rotherham Museum. Presentation: The paintings are housed in their original period gilt frames which are in excellent condition. Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, these works are offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished.
