Denby Sweeting Oil on Board.

Born in Bristol in 1936, Sweeting’s fabulously detailed brushwork and vivid colour are continuation of the traditions and techniques of Victorian realist painters such as William Holman Hunt. A smiling white goat, its teather chewed through, stands beside a group of ducks in an overgrown corner of the farm. Clearly signed and presented in the original frame with a Reading Room Studio label on the reverse.
Dimensions: width 21″, height 15″.


19th.c. Naive Seascape On Glass.

Discovered locally this delightful mid 19th.c. Welsh folk art seascape on glass c.1860. Painting on glass employs a remarkable reverse process whereby forground detail is added first before the colour blocks and background. In an unusual scene with a charming naive scale a man poles a small boat through the surf toward a boat under sail. In the backgrounds stands a wooden pier or quayside and two pointed top watch towers very simialr to those found in Ireland. Bright colours and lovely detail to the waves. In excellent condition, presented in the original frame.
Dimensions: width 29″. height 21″.
