English School (19th century), Landscape of Figures at Lake, pair of oil on canvas paintings, ca. late 19th century

Item Description:

Oil on canvas, each signed 'H. Rainer', framed

A very handsome pair of paintings in oil on canvas of morning and evening on the same lake - the first painting depicts a young man in a red jacket with his boat pulled upon shore as he rests under a tree overlooking a calm lake. A boater breaks the surface of the water with birds flying overhead as a series of thatched roof cottages are visible on the other bank. The second work depicts the end of the day as the same figure brings his boat to shore at another part of the lake - a small windmill and cottages are visible, presumably his destination after securing the boat. Both are signed in the corners "H. Rainer", an unknown artist clearly of the British tradition in genre work. They are fine works of nostalgia of excellent detail and vibrant color - the crisp rendering of grasses, trees, water ripples and buildings is noteworthy.

Condition:

Varnish yellowing and both paintings would benefit from a surface cleaning. “Evening” under UV shows some touch ups in the trees and along the edges, the surface somewhat obscured by the varnish cast. There is a small puncture with loss in the center-bottom quadrant in the tall grass as well as light edge loss. The second work has similar light edge loss, a tiny chip loss above the rowboat, a patch verso to upper right quadrant, some touch up under UV in the craquelure along the right side, the varnish obscuring a more full analysis of touch ups. Both works remain on their original linings with stretcher bar impressions and craquelure throughout. Frames are old and regarded with loss/cracking/discoloration as expected. Please contact cataloging@lofty.com for specific condition questions.
