WATERCOLOUR OF WOODLAND LANDSCAPE SIGNED A.J. BILLINGHURST
A. J. Billinghurst (1880-1963) remains a very well respected and listed artist who was born in Blackheath.
After his education in Switzerland, he returned to study at The Slade School of Art in London. He came under the influence of Fred Brown and the English Impressionist Movement. He then went on to Paris and the Julien’s Academy and the Ecole de Beaux Arts.
He was elected a full member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1921 and also occupied a studio next to Pissaro.
Billinghurst exhibited at many important London galleries including the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists and in France the Paris Salon.
This is a very well executed watercolour of a woodland landscape as you would expect from such an acclaimed artist. The painting is housed in a lovely wooden painted frame and is signed to the lower right hand corner. The old framer’s label to the rear is also charming.
The painting is in very good condiion and ready to be hung and enloyed.
Early 20th Century.
