ROYAL ACADEMY EXHIBITED LANDSCAPE PAINTING BY ARTIST J.KNIGHT DEPICTING A MOORLAND RURAL SCENE WITH DEER EXECUTED IN A PASTEL & GOUACHE MEDIUM CIRCA 1895 MOUNTED INSIDE A HUGH SWEPT GILT FRAME SIZE 62 X 52 INCHES
A quality work of art painted in Pastel & Gouache by sought after Royal Academy acclaimed artist
J.Knight,depicting a moorland landscape scene with deer.
This fine example is in excellent condition and is protected under the original glass.
This fine painting finished in Pastel & Gouache captures perfectly the steamy mist and dewey dampness of the moors,with the green grassy colours changing intensity in the various applications of sunlight and daylight,a true realistic landscape having depth and realism to stir most imaginations.
All very well scaled and just like looking through a real framed window bringing the outside inside.
A beautiful swept original frame made from cast gesso and recently fully re-gilded throughout,and now looking absolutely stunning.
The frame has had some previous old repairs.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Knight was a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, joining in January 1868. He withdrew in 1879 and was re-elected in 1883. He was also elected a member of the Dudley Gallery, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Etchers, the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, the Limners Club and Art-Min-Afon, Betws-y-Coed. In 1874 he was a Royal Manchester Institution prize-winner and in 1891 he won a bronze medal at the Paris Exhibition.
At the Royal Academy his works were frequently hung on the line. His work is in the their permanent collection as well as at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery London, Manchester Art Gallery, Walker Art Gallery and other provincial galleries
The Manchester School of Painters was formed by a number of disgruntled young vanguard painters in the 1870s. They were deeply influenced by the artist, Joseph Knight who was a successful painter, etcher and photographer. He was the founder member of the Manchester School of Painters. Knight painted how “he” desired and refused to conform to traditional Art School rules and this appealed to his young admirers. Twice weekly they would all meet up at Knight’s studio in York Place behind the Union Chapel in Oxford Road, Manchester to discuss new ways to develop their techniques.
