19th-Century Oil, Rural View With Cloudy Sky

A handsome late-19th-century oil on canvas depicting a rural view under a vast cloudy sky.

A well-worn track bends away to our left before disappearing into a copse. Two figures have stopped to chat - perhaps on their way home - while the sun gently illuminates the distant scenery. We particularly love the horizontal layers in the composition, which reveal themselves as your eyes gradually explore the landscape.

The painting is housed within a beautiful period frame with swept corners and foliate ornamentation. It’s signed ‘A Weber’ which could relate to the German painter, August Weber (1817–1873).

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 22½” x 17½” / 57cm x 45cm
Year of creation: c. 1870
