old painting:-
thumbnail PR1149, button to large image
Painting, oil painting, River Scene near Naworth, Brampton, Cumberland, by George James Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle, 1870-75.
Autumn; to left of composition lies the flat grassy bank of a wide shallow river framed by a large tree. To right, a wooded hillside descends to meet the slowly flowing water.
Although the work was given to his daughter in 1899 its murky tones and hesitant use of paint suggest that it is of a much earlier date, most likely to have been executed during the transitional period of the early 1870s when Howard was experiencing a loss of confidence and was vacillating between the depiction of figure subjects and that of landscape.
