A superb oil on canvas landscape oil by one of the great British landscape artists David Cox Snr O.W.S (1783-1859). The painting shows a landscape of ripe wheat fields and figures on a road, there is a village in the distance with beautifully detailed windmills. The painting is as would be expected beautifully worked and composed with a huge expanse of sky emphasising the open flat landscape. The painting has been lined some time ago and had some minor restoration at that time, it has been professionally cleaned recently. The painting is framed in a vintage gilt frame that works well with the artwork. The work is signed and dated to the left of centre ‘David Cox 1849’ which is typical for the artist. Cox was the most famous landscape artist of the mid-19th century, with a national reputation for fresh, lively landscapes in watercolour and, later, in oil. Born in Birmingham the child of a blacksmith, he studied initially with a painter of miniatures and also with Joseph Barber, the leading drawing master in the city at the time. He later worked as a scenery painter at Birmingham Theatre Royal and at Astley's Theatre. In the 1804 he went to London where he took lessons from the celebrated watercolourist John Varley (1778-1842), and later moved to Dulwich in the south of London as a teacher himself, and gathered a large group of pupils around him. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1805. His son David Cox Jnr also an artist was born in 1809. Between 1814-1827 he was based in Hereford where he taught at a girl's school. He moved back to London in 1827, and was by this time quite well known as a painter of landscapes. In 1826 he toured France, Holland and Belgium and, in 1829 and 1832, returned once more to France. Between 1844 and 1856 he made annual visits to North Wales where he made some of his finest watercolours. In 1841 he moved to Harborn, Birmingham where he lived and painted until his death in 1858. This painting is a wonderful example of his work and a great piece of nineteenth century art, it is ready to hang.
