"Castle By The River"

Signed To The Lower Centre Right By The Artist G Willis Pryce For George Willis Pryce RSA RWS


Circa 1900

Oil On Canvas


In Excellent Condition

Estimated Value £600-900

This stunning and very well executed original oil painting by this fabulous listed artist measures 15 1/2" by 11 1/2" by 1 1/2" including the frame, and just under 11 1/2" by 7 1/2" actual picture area. The oil itself is in excellent condition, with no damage whatsoever. The more recent solid wood gilded and painted frame is in excellent condition with a little chip on one of the lower back corners (not visible unless looking up at the painting), and suits the painting very nicely. The painting is secured onto its own stretcher which is then strongly secured into the outer frame. The painting is ready to hang with a hanging wire.

The painting portrays a gorgeous landscape featuring a magnificent castle overlooking a river. The brushwork is absolutely superb and the colours are beautiful. I particularly love the trees, the castle and the reflections in the river. I do not know where the location was as the artist painted many works in all sorts of locations but it is certainly very beautiful. The colours in the sky are lovely and the texture within the oil is also very pleasing and also very typical of Willis Pryce's works.

The painting is clearly signed to the lower centre right G Willis Pryce by the artist George Willis Pryce. Looking at the age of the canvas I would estimate that this was one of his earlier works executed around 1900. George Willis Pryce is and was a very well collected artist whose works often sell for many hundreds of pounds. This is a particularly lovely example of one of his landscape works.

I have photographed the painting the best that I can and any shine is purely and only reflection of the light on the oil.

This is a stunning original oil painting in excellent condition by this well listed and highly collected artist that is being offered with no reserve and a realistic buy it now price of £449.99.
