Description
A fine oil on canvas winter landscape scene by Frank Ernest Beresford 1881-1967. The view shows a farming landscape looking towards hills with a light dusting of snow. The reverse of the painting locates the scene to South Farm Houghton, Heddon on the wall and dates it to March 1951. The reverse also shows the work is numbered and has the artist’s address indicating it was exhibited. The painting has been professionally cleaned and is in good original condition. The silvered frame is the original and is in good untouched country house condition. Frank Ernest Beresford was born in Derby in 1881 and had a long artistic education. He first studied at the Derby School of Art, then St John's Wood Art School, and finally at the Royal Academy Schools. His talent was rewarded with a travel scholarship that took him to Asia. Returning to England from 1906 he exhibited at the Royal Academy as well as other national art galleries. In 1936, Beresford made the only painting of the princes’ keeping vigil with their father's body overnight. It was titled ‘The Princes' Vigil: 12.15am, January 28, 1936’ and it was bought by Queen Mary who gave it to King Edward Viii on his birthday. During World War Ii, Beresford was only the second person to be awarded an Exceptional Service Award from the United States Air Force, which also has some of his paintings on permanent display. Beresford was a war artist for both the American and British air forces. His portraits include those of the Spitfire designer, Reginald Joseph Mitchell. Frank Beresford's works include two kings and a queen, and in the collection in his home county there is a portrait of George Herbert Strutt owned by Belper Town Council and a view of Dovedale in Derby Art Gallery. This painting is a great example of the artist’s later work and has a wonderful mid-century decorative appeal.
