Oil on canvasboard landscape with distant mountains, a lake or inlet of the sea, and a whitewashed stone cottage, likely Ireland, less likely to be Scotland, 15" by 19" (19" by 23" as framed), signed at lower right by listed twentieth century artist GEORGE McCULLOUGH (1922-). Paintings by the artist appear to be rather scarce, rarely making appearances at auction (and, also, it appears that his scarce listings are chronically confused with those of an American artist by the same name and similar 1920's birth date). From the Dictionary of Artists in Britain since 1945: "George McCullough (1922-) Painter, draughtsman and teacher, born and lived in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He studied at the College of Technology and College of Art there 1940-7. Went on to run the Donegal School of landscape Painting. Showed at the RUA, Bell Gallery in Belfast, Cambridge and Oriel Galleries in Dublin and North America". The scene is appealing and reminds the viewer of the valuable paintings of Paul Henry, James Humbert Craig, and a number of other noted painters in Ireland and Scotland. The work probably dates to the mid 20th century. It is somewhat bowed (convex) towards the center but is basically clean and attractive. There's one little brown bit of foreign matter at upper edge. Frame of brown painted wood while original doesn't show the painting to best advantage. .
