    About this item

    This is a large outstanding exhibition quality original signed 19th Century Watercolour Landscape Painting by British Royal Academy Listed artist:

    'John Horace Hooper' (1851-1906).

    John Horace Hooper was born in England in 1851. An active painter with a highly distinctive style about his landscapes and seascapes. Hooper made his debut in London at the Suffolk Street Gallery, where he exhibited from 1877–79. He exhibited six times at the Royal Academy, together with exhibited work at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Arthur Tooth & Sons Gallery.

    John Horace Hooper was active until 1899 and died in 1906.

    The exceptional example is of a very generous size and the painting depicts a rural English River Landscape setting with a courting couple enjoying the tranquil river aboard a Gondola type pleasure boat.

    On the riverbank beyond is a large old farmhouse with a small flock of grazing sheep, together with a lone female Swan that can be seen elegantly paddling by.

    The expansive surrounding countryside is adorned with tall mature trees, whilst on the other riverbank, a lone dog walker ambles past on the footpath.

    indeed, the painting appears to show something each time it is viewed. It is truly a magnificent example to behold.
