About

A fine oil on canvas which dates to circa 1870 by listed artist Albert Stevens. It is a superb British Impressionist painting which depicts the artist in his studio in front of a painting he is working on. Signed lower left. Provenance. Sotheby. Christie’s. Framed in a fine gilt gallery frame 39 by 33 inches. In excellent condition. Albert George Stevens (1863-1925) was a founding member of the renowned Staithes Art Club (founded in 1901) based around Whitby. He was born in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire where his father was a doctor. Stevens studied at the Academy in Antwerp after the death of his father and tended to paint mostly in watercolour. His style was impressionistic, his subject matter mostly Yorkshire landscapes in which he sometimes captured the local children playing, the farmer leading his sheep, interiors with ladies taking tea or flower arranging or more domestic chores such as milking time. Stevens exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, the Walker Gallery Liverpool.
