Original 19th Century “Loch Achilty” Watercolor Painting by L.G. Bomford, 1889

About

Beautiful original signed watercolor painting by listed, deceased English painter, Reverend Laurence George Bomford, (1847-1926) titled "Loch Achilty" and dated 1889 is a tranquil work of art. Painting depicts a lushly wooded shoreline, Loch Achilty and the hills and sky beyond. Loch Achilty is a large picturesque lowland freshwater loch, set within a sloping birch and oakwood forest and is located near to Contin in Ross-shire, Scottish Highlands, Scotland. Beautifully custom framed behind glass in a traditional ribbed and beaded gold leaf frame with vining leaf accents and triple matted to enhance the subtle colors of the painting. Visible image measures 9.25” wide x 14” high. Framed measures 28” wide x 32 .75” high x 2.25” deep. Weighs 13.5 pounds. Laurence Bomford was an accomplished artist, born on August 6, 1847. In 1918 he retired to St. lbans, where he died on July 2, 1926 at the age of 78. He actively painted between 1873 and 1920. His works are mainly in watercolor and often are plein air sketches. His landscape paintings are characterized by delicate brushwork in a semi-impressionist fashion with excellent perspective and composition, and good contrasts between light and shade. He traveled widely to paint, with works depicting locations throughout England and Wales. There exists a smaller number of pieces from Scotland, which makes the Scottish scenes more collectible. He was exhibited at the Christchurch Exhibition, New Zealand, alongside other English and Italian artists in 1882. In recent times his works have occasionally come onto the open market, being offered by major auction houses in Europe, America and South Africa.
