River Landscape - Sold

circle of Joseph Mallord William Turner - Sold

River Landscape - Sold

A very fine early 19th century oil painting on canvas depicting a river landscape with figures on the bank and the outline of a castle and buildings beyond from the circle of Turner.  Turner is known as 'the painter of light' and the lighting of this piece is exceptional - the sunlight filtered through the mist and reflected in the water to wonderful effect.  The painting is reminiscent of many of Turner's landscapes - obviously it is unlikely this is by Turner but it is from his circle and of good quality.   The painting bears a signature 'J.M.W. Turner' lower left - the signature has been fully checked under ultra violet and is original to the painting - it has not been added at a later date.  A wonderful oil painting from the circle of one of England's greatest artists.
