FREDERICK JOHN WIDGERY 1861-1942

HIGHLAND SCENE

An excellent early twentieth century original gouache painting by the well listed artist Frederick John Widgery, depicting a highland scene. The painting is of lovely quality, signed to lower left and is presented in a gilt mount. A lovely example.

F.J. Widgery was the son of William Widgery (1822-1893) who was also a well known landscape painter. Frederick John Widgery produced landscape and coastal scenes, mainly in gouache, with most of the subjects being local scenes in the Devon and Cornwall area. He was born in 1861 and studied at the Exeter School of Art, in London and in Antwerp. He later became a magistrate and Mayor of Exeter, being very active in local affairs.
