This dreamlike landscape was painted by Algernon Newton RA. 1880 – 1968. His works are well known and many were reproduced as prints, I own one published 1955. The copyright of this work is now owned by Hull Museums and they have kindly given me permission to publish an image of the original painting here. They have dated the original as 1936. It would appear that there is no record of the location of this scene. All that is known is that the artist worked in Cornwall, Yorkshire and London.
Interesting fact: AN’s family were artists and also the founders of Windsor & Newton artists materials.
CLUES SO FAR:Is this an ash tree? Do you recognise the river or is it a canal?
This is a dark and mysterious scene – I have an original print signed by the artist although the name is difficult to decipher. This scene could be fictional but I thought I would add it to the collection in case it inspired anyone. Do you recognise the castle? Perhaps it’s Camelot!
This original watercolour was bequeathed to my parents about 30 years ago when they lived in Exmouth in Devon – the artist is a mystery but he may have been a vicar (just a vague memory). The scene is reminiscent of a Dartmoor river. Does anyone have any other ideas to identify the scene?
This is an unsigned original oil painting. We’ll probably never discover the name of the artist but has anyone any idea where this landscape could be and when it was painted? Please send ideas and any clues you may think will help.
What kind of trees do you think these are? Note the coppiced hedgerow. I have a feeling that this landscape is on high ground?
This is a genuine oil painting I purchased recently in Liss in Hampshire. The signature is hard to read. The mountains in the distance give it a magical quality – could this be an Irish scene? Please help develop a list of possible clues if any occur to you.
It’s interesting that the composition is similar to the picture in my last post – perhaps they were both inspired by John Constable?
Can anyone help identify where and when this picture was painted?
I own the original painting signed by Campbell Hunter. It was purchased in Petersfield, Hampshire for a few pounds. I thought it was hauntingly beautiful.
Please help me develop this list of clues if any occur to you.
CLUES SO FAR:
1. Has anyone any information about the artist? When I searched for info on the web, Wikipedia led me here…
http://tinyurl.com/7gevwxu – Unfortunately this was a dead end as the Campbell Hunter in Scotland (father of Sir Tom Hunter) is not the artist.
2. The soil in the original work appears to be sandy.
