English Country Landscape Oil Painting by George Charlton
Oil on Board by George Charlton (British artist, 1899-1979). Most likely painted between 1938 and 1946 when Charlton was evacuated to Oxford with the Slade School of Fine Art where he was tutoring. Some of his best oil and water colour landscapes came from this period. His favourite place to paint was at nearby Leonard Stanley in Gloucestershire which is most likely depicted in this painting.
Beautifully framed and ready to hang.
