Large antique Scottish landscape oil painting of loch and mountains signed J H Boel.
Scottish, dated 1904.
Signed by the artist, John Henry Boel (active 1890-1915).
"John Henry Boel was a British Landscape Painter. He painted in oils and less frequently in watercolour. Boel concentrated mainly on landscapes, figures and coastal scenes. His landscapes often depicted the Scottish highlands. John Henry Boel was a very popular artist during his time. He was a prolific artist and his work is often seen on the market. Exhibited 1884-1922.
He is catalogued as both H B Joel and J H Boel (q.v) as the signature is monogrammed with initials and is difficult to read. There is some evidence that Joel was his actual name. The early examples painted in the 1890's are usually dated".

Condition commensurate with age - various superficial marks & scratches, craquelure and some knocks to and pieces missing from gesso frame but all part of its charm and character.
The antique wood of this item has had a minor woodworm infestation at some point in its long life. However, this has now been specially treated to eradicate.
This item is obviously delicate and the gesso frame fragile.
