19th century English Victorian River landscape

REF: 2200

Edwin Henry Boddington was a London landscape painter. He was the son of Henry John Boddington, also a well-known artist.

Edwin exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1854 - 1866, but more often at the British Institute and Suffolk Street. His subjects were mainly views on the Thames. He developed a very personal and recognizable style; his river scenes are usually painted in the calm evening light, using a range of very dark greens and browns.

This is a very fine example of the artist's work. His use of many small brushstrokes one on top of the other gives each of his paintings a distinctive look and a very high-quality finish. The observational skills of the painter are obvious in his well-balanced compositions and highly decorative paintings.

All these skills I'm sure he learned from his famous painter father.

This piece is framed in a vintage English Swept style frame and the painting is in good original condition.
