Oil on canvas, " by " (" by " framed), the subject a peaceful glen deep in a forest, painted in a luminous style reminiscent of the American Hudson River School, likely Fairy Glen in North Wales, signed at lower right by the noted well listed English artist WILLIAM MELLOR (1851-1931). Mellor was a highly prolific (I see over 1,600 auction records) artist, born in Barnsley, England. He traveled widely, painting often in Wales and Yorkshire. Today his peaceful classic paintings of sensitively rendered summer and autumn landscapes, often featuring forest, waterfalls, and cattle (and usually little of the hand of man seems to be included in his works) find ready buyers. This work is in generally good condition, with a dusty surface and two small area of inpainting noted at upper left and top center. The frame, as shown, has significant losses at top and right sides.
