Oil on canvas painting of a peaceful landscape in England, 24" by 16", and with newer frame 2" wide, signed at lower right corner by the well known and prolific English late nineteenth century landscape artist ABRAHAM HULK, Junior (1851-1922). The scene is a rural idyll, with a clouding-over sky threatening a storm, feathery trees, a cottage at center, English ancient country church, chickens and cows, a stream entering the scene from the lower left corner. This is rather typical subject matter for the artist, who was the son of Abraham Hulk Senior ( ). The son was born in the Netherlands but lived most of his life in southern England, painting scenes of Surrey and Nottingham, and some of the Netherlands, to which he returned frequently throughout his life. Hulk exhibited at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Society of British Artists. Today his pleasing, traditional landscapes appear regularly at auctions in America and Europe. This example is in generally good condition. There is heavy varnish, an uneven loose canvas (rippling at upper right), stable craquelure. A restorer could easily tighten this on the stretchers. There are no rips nor tears. See other examples by Hulk on the net.
