PAINTING REF 110003
( Late 19th century )
Here we have a unique and rare piece of english history ,the painting was created around the first half of the 19th century properly a study piece for a royal academy student as many were taken to british museums to undertake painting grandmaster pieces.
Remember there was no photos in those days
We have had the piece under the microscope and we date this around 1850,s
Title: Romantic Inn scene
Artist: circle of edwin landseer for obvious reasons .
This painting needs more research but this can cost thousands.
Beautiful painting that maybe a hidden gem.
Anyway unless you have £30 million spare for one of his paintings this is one way to
obtain a beautiful piece with a big question mark to whom it was done by at a fraction of the price.

Description: Landseer was born in London, the son of the engraver John Landseer A.R.A. He was something of a prodigy whose artistic talents were recognised early on. He studied under several artists, including his father, and the history painter Benjamin Robert Haydon, who encouraged the young Landseer to perform dissections in order
to fully understand animal musculature and skeletal structure. Landseer's life was
entwined with the Royal Academy. At the age of just 13, in 1815, he exhibited works
there. He was elected an Associate at the age of 24, and an Academician five years
later in 1831. He was knighted in 1850, and although elected President in 1866 he
declined the invitation.
In his late 30s Landseer suffered what is now believed to be a substantial nervous
breakdown, and for the rest of his life was troubled by recurring bouts of melancholy,
hypochondria, and depression, often aggravated by alcohol and drug use. In the last few years of his life Landseer's mental stability was problematic, and at the request of his family he was declared insane in July 1872.
