We are delighted to offer for sale this tranquil and evocative oil on canvas by the artist WILLIAM LANGLEY, who has signed the painting in the lower left hand corner. The painting depicts a scene of Loch Awe and its surrounding mountains, with a group of three shaggy, highland cattle watering near the banks. Loch Awe is a very large freshwater loch in Argyll and Bute on the west coast of Scotland.
The fact that our reference books do not list this artist also points to it being a pseudonym or that he did not exhibit his work, but we have found one written biography in Jeremy Wood's excellent book 'Hidden Talents', which we quote below:
'Painter in oil of rural landscapes and coastal scenes who was working in the early 1900s. The subjects of this prolific artist included views in Cornwall, the South of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Among the titles of known works are 'On the Lledr', 'Wee Bridge, Killarney', 'In the Glen', and 'Sunshine after Rain, a Village in the Thames'. The work shows a distinct simarity to that of several artists working at the time and the signature could possibly be a pseudonym. The pictures are often large and decorative and have become increasingly popular in recent years.'
The painting is framed in a new 3 1/2' gilt frame and slip and will be supplied wired and ready to hang.
MEDIUM:- Oils on canvas laid to board and backed with artists board.
