Superb Large 19th Century Oil Painting by Listed Artist William Eddington

Thisis a large and magnificent original 19 th century English landscape by the listed Victorian artist, William Eddington (1840-1894) . This exceptionally fine 150 year old antique oil on canvas depicts an extensive scene of 19 th century rural life around the Malvern Hills in the county of Worcestershire.

Eddington exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1861 and 1881 and the Society of British Artists at the famous Suffolk Street Gallery between 1862 and 1875. Eddington’s ‘Near Dinas Crag, North Wales’ hangs in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London , but this work is the finest I have seen by the artist.

This large work has been professionally cleaned and is in excellent gallery condition. The painting is signed by the artist to the lower left. Eddington is listed in Christopher Wood’s definitive work on 19 th British artists, ‘Victorian Painters’.
