Snow Scene Paintings Snowballing

Winter scene paintings Snowballing was painted by John Morgan in 1865. These are evidently country children, as at least two of them wear the traditional smock still in use by working men and boys in country districts of Britain in the 1860s. snow scene paintings for sale

Smocks for everyday wear were usually of a strong brown or grey cloth, and all the pieces used in their making were rectangles, squares or triangles. The construction was therefore very economical: it needed no pattern pieces, and wasted no fabric in curved shapes. Dimensions: Height: 60.5 cm, Width: 130 cm canvas. winter scene paintings sale

Snow Sences Painting The Boulevard de Clichy under Snow

Painting The Boulevard de Clichy under Snow was painted by Norbert Goeneutte in 1876. Goeneutte painted this snowy scene at the age of only twenty-two. At the time he lived very close to the boulevard de Clichy in Paris, and he was to make a number of paintings and etchings of the buildings and people on this busy thoroughfare. winter landscape paintings sale

The painting can be seen as a quiet celebration of the metropolitan elegance of Paris, but its title shows that Goeneutte saw the wintry weather as important element in the composition. The artist admired Manet and was a friend of Renoir in this period. In later years, however, his choice of subjects and style were both relatively traditional. Snow Sences Paintings for sale

Snow Sences Painting The Joyless Winter Day

Painting The Joyless Winter Day was painted by Joseph Farquharson in 1883. Despite blizzard conditions, this picture was actually painted in the open air, albeit from the relative comfort of the artist’s specially contructed mobile painting hut, which contained a stove. This enabled Farquharson to capture the remarkably realistic effects of a snow storm. Snow Sences Paintings for sale

The sheep, however, were false, fabricated in plaster by a local sculptor. Farquharson was famed for his Scottish snow scenes, and excepting 1914, sent a new one to the Royal Academy every year between 1894 and 1925. This was the first in the series. Farquharson combined a career as an artist with his inheritied responsibility as laird of the Finzean estate in Aberdeenshire, where many of his landscapes were painted. landscape oil paintings

Snow Sences Painting Whitehall in Winter

Painting Whitehall in Winter was painted by Paul Maze in 1920. Paul Maze was an Anglo-French painter who painted English town and country scenes in a late Impressionist manner. Born at Le Havre of French parents, his father collected art and was a friend of various artists, including Raoul Dufy and Georges Braque. At twelve Maze was sent to school in England to perfect his English, and afterwards worked for ten years in his father’s firm importing India rubber and coffee in Liverpool and Hamburg.  Snow Sences Paintings for sale

In 1921 Maze married a British wife, took British nationality and henceforth lived mainly in England. Here he was a representative of a tradition of French painting that was for a brief period admired as avant garde, notable for a thick application of paint and tonal colouring, with traditional subjects of landscape and still life. With his connections in British society, Maze enjoyed popularity as a half-English survivor of the school of Paris and, like Dufy, often painted race meetings, yachting scenes and the landscape of the southern English counties.

In Whitehall in Winter Maze shows the view from the edge of St James’s Park in central London, looking over towards Whitehall. The building on the right is Horseguards, designed by William Kent (1685-1748), home of the household cavalry, while further to the left is the Admiralty. The Horseguards parade ground marks one of the centres of British establishment life, surrounded by Government buildings, and the place where every year the monarch receives the army’s salute at the Trooping of the Colour ceremony. Maze’s treatment of the heavy blanket of snow and its reflection of light may owe something to seeing the pictures of Camille Pissarro. winter landscape paintings sale

Snow Sences Painting Outside an Inn

Painting Outside an Inn was painted by George Morland in 1795. George Morland specialised in scenes of cottages and country inns. He was a great success in the 1790s. In contrast to the more simplistic and sentimental views of the nineteenth century, his work sometimes acknowledged the rougher side of country living, and even the distinctions of class and status which underpinned rural society.

Here, a gentleman traveller is leaving an inn, and is paying the landlady. The contrast between the well-fed pig and the gentleman’s pedigree spaniel emphasises the social division between the two figures. winter landscape paintings sale
