English Original Samuel Raven Pair of Hound Dog Oil Paintings in Original Frames

About the Item

English pair of signed Samuel Raven oil paintings on panel of hound dogs. One is of a female hound and her puppies in a barn, the other is a pair of hound dogs running in a landscape; "Hound and Puppies" and "Hounds on the Run". Both are in original gold frames, signed with initials S(amuel) R(aven), circa 1835. Samuel Raven (1775-1847) was born in Birmingham, and apprenticed to Joseph Orme Ashmore. His earliest dated painting is 1800, titled "Old English Dogs". He almost always painted on a small scale, signed with initials, and usually on panel. He painted genre scenes, still lives and animal subjects including shooting and hunting scenes. He is known for his finely detailed work and dramatic composition. He exhibited at the Birmingham Society of Artists between 1834 and 1847. He spent most of his life in Birmingham but was never a prolific artist, fewer than 50 paintings of his being known.

  • English Georgian Thomas Luny Original Oil "Retrieving the Grog before the Storm"
    By Thomas Luny
    Located in Wells, ME
    English original oil painting on canvas "Retrieving the Grog Before the Storm"; signed lower left: Thomas LUNY; and indistinctly dated--only a "2" is discernable. This dramatic painting depicts ships outward bound while smugglers in the foreground heave their small boat to shore while others roll a barrel of grog to safety. The sea is building while the white cliffs and stone fortress at the entrance to a harbor stand firm against the impending storm. This is quintessential Luny, displaying his deft handling of the ocean and the exposition of coastal life in the early 19th century. We have had this painting cleaned, rebacked and restored by Northeast Painting Conservation, York, Maine. Thomas Luny (1759-1837), was born in Cornwall but moved to London at an early age and was raised there by his parents, Thomas and Elizabeth. Thomas' father is thought to have been employed in some activity at the London Docks and from thence the younger Thomas was exposed to the maritime world from an early age. He is thought to have been apprenticed to the London artist Francis Holman...
