Large (40" by 32", 47 1/2" by 41 1/2" as nicely framed) painting of a woman in a rowboat on a small lake, trees providing some respite from the sun on this high summer, exceptionally bright day, signed at lower left by listed English artist ERNEST G. BEACH (1865-c. 1934), and dated there 1910. This is an impressive work, perhaps one of the artist's best, with beautiful impressionist technique and colors. Beach appears to have painted many landscapes with sheep and shepherds, as well as some shore scenes with fisherfolk. Many were watercolors. Generally the works are smaller in scale though a few larger pieces have shown up at auction in the last 30 or so years. Interestingly a vertical format piece of this exact size, titled "Boys Bathing", and also dated 1910, was sold at Sotheby's London in the early 1980's. The auction world seems to have overlooked this obviously highly talented artist. Condition is excellent and this is ready for display. As I find more biographical information on Beach I will add it to the listing. Due to the large size, contact me about shipping costs and options.
