Offered for sale is a beautiful late Victorian era English oil painting depicting a pastoral landscape. The painting features several cows grazing in a field near a large lake. The cows are well-rendered and stand out against the cloud filled sky and green pastures. Signed "A. R. Sharpe", this painting typifies the pastoral genres that were so popular during the 19th century.
The painting is set into a highly carved giltwood frame with an old label on the rear that reads "W. H. Hooper, JR", a 19th Century gallery and frame store in Brooklyn. The painting is in very good condition, as is the frame, with minor separation and discoloring at the joints. The incredible gold leaf finish is mostly intact.
