This lovely sweeping landscape oil on canvas is by the listed British artist James Heron (? - 1919) who is known for his landscape and farm paintings. The vista is wide, encompassing mountains and valley, with a storm blowing dark clouds in over the hills at the upper left. The more immediate subject is a rustic Scottish farm... a bucolic setting.

There are farm houses, cows near a stream, and another cow with a farm woman near a thatched cottage. Your eye is led into the composition by a road, which crosses a quaint bridge that leads to this idyllic farm scene. Beyond are mountains that recede into the distance.

CONDITION is great. This painting has been professionally cleaned, relined, and restored. It was put back on it's original stretchers with new corner wedges. A piece of modern stabilizing material was attached to the stretchers to add strength and support. One of the stretchers bears a note, now protected with a clear material; the stabilizing material covers this note. I have removed it for photography, to show you both the note and the back of the painting. As well as I can determine, the note says:

No. 4 Strathyre Perthshire

James Heron of Warrendon Perth Coun't

Edinburgh

Signed "James Heron" at the lower left. The frame is new, and the painting is secured in it with easily removable clips. Measures 29½" x 21½" overall, with a sight size of 23 5/8" x 15 5/8". The painting on its stretchers without the frame measures 24¼" x 16". Weighs 7 lbs. 3 oz.

This is a beautiful scene that draws one in for a closer look. It evokes a simpler time and encourages quiet contemplation. Enjoy!
