    Landscape, Artist Unknown, Oil on Canvas

    Print on Art Paper

    Print size: 34 x 44 cm / 13.5 x 17.5 inch

    Lush greenery with flowering trees and shrubs laden with fruits gives this landscape a circular arrangement. Distant sunlight in the sky glistens the landscape with its streaks falling at strategic junctures. The flowering tree in the foreground is seen glowing with the streaks of sunlight, falling on its leaves, providing them a deep red appearance. With two vertical mountains rising on either sides of this composition, emphasis is attributed towards the distant background with a river flowing through the middle ground.

    Thick foliage amalgamates with the natural surroundings of this landscape along with various architectural elements in the background. Towards the right, a ruined circular spire makes a subtle appearance on the summit of the mountain. The foreground portrays three men dressed in the traditional attire of countrymen with jackets and long boots. The headgears of these men have been portrayed with attention.

    This academic style reflects Richard Wilson’s work according to the 1931 catalogue by Sir Evan Cotton. Being an admired
    British landscape painter, Wilson worked in Britain and Italy, He has been described in the Welsh Academy Encyclopedia as
    the “most distinguished painter Wales has ever produced and the first to appreciate the aesthetic possibilities of his country”.

    Print on Art Paper

    Print size: 34 x 44 cm / 13.5 x 17.5 inch

    Vertical mountains on the right side direct the spectator through several creative interventions in this landscape. From the distant background, a long aqueduct on an arched bridge connects with a towering round tower atop a hill on the other side. According to the 1931 catalogue written by Sir Evan Cotton, the tower resembles an Italian castle.

    The foreground interweaves three interesting characters. On one side, a woman is seen mounted on a horse with a man
    accompanying her on foot. Her head is turned in three quarter profile which furthermore directs the viewer’s eye towards
    an Indian man on the other side. Dressed in an ochre jaina and crimson pagdi, he is portrayed lying on one of the rocks
    while fishing from the water stream in his front.

    The water is painted in a forceful manner, gushing downwards from the spring and turning calm as it flows into the sea.
    A boat draws attention to the vast expanse of the sea waters, stretching till the background. With undulating hues of
    green and brown, this landscape reveals an impeccable play of refined brushstrokes. Amidst the calmness, two dogs in the
    foreground provide movement to this visual.

    Print on Art Paper

    Print size: 34 x 44 cm / 13.5 x 17.5 inch

    This painting represents a scenic landscape extending into distant background with swirling clouds. Streaks of sunlight fall effectively on the clouds which seem to be radiant in their appearance. Craggy mountains in deep umber brown are painted across the horizontal frame of this composition.

    Two individuals, dressed in western clothes can be seen in the foreground. The entire canvas is divided by a serene sea occupying the central ground in conventional academic style. Vegetal motifs and a tree are painted on one side of this expansive painting, directing the viewer’s eye to the detailed landscape in the background.

    This painting is attributed to A.W. Devis in the 1931 catalogue. However some scholars have argued that it could be by other artists, based on stylistic conventions. Arthur William Devis was born in 1762 in London as the nineteenth child of the artist Arthur Devis and his wife Elizabeth Faulkner. He was renowned for his skill as a British painter of history paintings and portraits. Appointed as draughtsman by the East India Company in 1783, under Captain Henry Wilson, he made Bengal his workplace in India. He painted portraits and historical subjects, sixty-five of which he exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London during 1779-1821.
