Description

PAYMENT BY INSTALMENTS OVER 4 MONTH TERM.

ALFRED POLLENTINE (1836-1890)
The artist is best known for his beautifully depicted Venetian scenes,Alfred being the best known of a family of artists which included R.J.Pollentine (fl. 1852-62) a painter of landscapes and animals, and W.H.Pollentine (fl. 1847 - 50) who painted coastal and shipping scenes.

Most renowned for his substantial body of work depicting scenes of Venice, Alfred Pollentine occasionally painted views of familiar English coastal landmarks (Whitby, Scarborough, St. Michaels Mount, Tynemouth etc); and much more rarely, continental ports.

Obviously interested by the relationship of town and water, Alfred Pollentine's is a fluid smooth style, in which fine use of line is combined with a distinctive and Italianate use of pastel colouring.

Although he exhibited at the major London galleries during the period 1861 - 1880, showing 2 works at the British Institution and 23 at the Royal Society of British Artists, Pollentine had a robust market for his work and he rarely needed to exhibit during latter part of his long career as an artist.

This huge example within a stunningly decorative period frame is one of the best works around in todays sought after market for his works,which paintings a fraction of the size still selling for thousands at the best auctions in London.

This substantial work was obviously for a very wealthy client,who has spared no expense in the shear scale of the commission,being one on its own for size,and making this example a are and collectible painting.

CONDITION
This fine example has been professionally cleaned throughout and restored visually to near perfect.
The canvas has had a professional re-line to a high standard and is well strengthened as a result of work.

FRAME
This is one of the most spectacularly decorative swept gilt frames seen for a long while and absolutely makes the painting a million dollars in looks.Very original hand made plaster moulded design with the odd but unnoticeable old repair.
A frame of this huge size and quality could cost as much as £3500-£4000 today fully restored.

SIGNATURE
The painting has been clearly signed in the lower right botton corner "Pollentine"
