Charles Dickinson Langley
Charles Dickinson Langley, Portrait Of A Mother & Child, Oil Painting

1841

About the Item

This beautiful mid-19th-century oil painting by British artist Charles Dickinson Langley (1799-1873) depicts a mother and child before a landscape. Little is known about Langley, which is unusual given his extraordinary ability. It’s apparent that he probably trained in Italy as his figures carry a three-dimensional porcelain quality akin to an old master. The composition here is also perhaps inspired by the pyramidal system employed by Raphael. It seems he worked exclusively for the aristocracy, producing portraits, scenes and topographical landscapes. All rendered with an abundance of country house charm. Signed/dated and held within a later frame. Provenance: Private collection, England.

    Well painted 19th-century portrait of Sir Charles Dickens. The original painting is in the National Gallery in London and I'm sure this piece would have been painted by a fan of the author who was also a very good artist as this piece is a very good copy of the original painting. There was a great fashion to paint copies of famous paintings during the 19th century and most of the world's most famous paintings have been copied many times. Often the artist who does the copy is very talented but usually anonymous With this piece, it's the only way to own an antique copy...
