Oil on canvas bucolic landscape, a figure tending to haystacks in a tawny field, a towering tree looking over it all, 19 1/2" by 30", (26" by 35 1/2 " framed), signed at lower right by late nineteenth century English artist G CLAYTON. There are a few works by the artist in the auction records but I see no biography. Judging from the subject matter,handling, and materials, the work would likely date to about 1890. This is a poetic work that will fit perfectly with a traditional home or office setting. It is in very good condition, the exception being an easily repaired approximately 1" abraded line in the sky at upper right, not penetrating through the canvas, and a few other very small pinpoint losses primarily in the sky at upper left..
