Pair of British School '19th Century' Scottish Highland Landscape Paintings

$1,865per set

About

A nice pair of British School landscape paintings of the Scottish Highlands with powerful mountains under clear skies with a river running through the valley. Both are signed H. Williams, likely Harry Williams of Liverpool active between 1854 and 1877. He was well known for his paintings of Liverpool and North Wales and exhibited at the Royal Academy at least twice as well as the British Institute. He moved to London where he died in poverty. They are an attractive pair that should eventually be restored. They appear to both capture the same mountain range from different vantage points along this peaceful river. Measurements: 20" H x 30" W [canvas]; 23 3/8" H x 33 5/8" W x 1 1/4" D [frame] Condition report: Estate-found condition; both have an old yellowed varnish and would benefit from cleaning and conservation; specks of paint loss and overall craquelure to surfaces; extensive areas of inpaint and overpaint visible to the eye (as well as under UV): notably the entire sky of the painting with the walking figure is overpainted (perhaps to brighten the sky at one point, but this has now yellowed); please contact us for a full discussion of the inpainting, though the majority of this can be seen clearly in our images shot under ultraviolet.
