Nearly at the Village Original Framed Oil Painting JAMES DOWNIE : Give Fine Art

Nearly at the Village  Original Framed Oil Painting JAMES DOWNIE : Give Fine Art

This is one of a collection of brilliant James Downie Paintings I am selling.  (Please see my other auctions for the remainder.) What a great way to celebrate Northern Art.

This in my opinion is one of the Best Paintings produced by Downie . It is highly evocative and immediatly transports one back to days gone by.

This contemporary painting measures 11" x 14" and is in excellent condition with lovely vibrant colours, it is framed. (Frame Size is 16.75" X 13.75")


His own biography is a modest one given the proficiency of his works :- James  Downie, 1949  "I was born in Manchester and went to school in South Manchester, I was always intrested in art and spent many hours in the town galleries studying the old masters,It was my best subject at school and just love painting, I keep trying to perfect the art as best i can. I left the building industry in 1989 to paint full time, I  painted for the tourist industry for 22 years but now just paint what i like to paint." I think the final sentence is certainly the most profound " but now just paint what I like to paint". This enthusiam is certainly evident in his work.

You are bidding on the painting shown above , I have taken lots of supersize photos of the actual painting so you can fully evaluate it. It is signed of course by the artist.

It will look superb in the modern or traditional home. 

I am based in the UK, I will be happy to combine postage for multiple purchases , please wait for me to send you a combined postage invoice. 


I just love all the Northern School Artists that Ebay brings together, all of them put their own Twist on what was started by L S Lowry , why not check out (in no particular order) John Ormsby , Lucy Collins , Peter Joseph Haddon , James Downie , Peter Pete Rumney , Richard Hubbard, Mal Burton , Pete Dimmock , Harry Lawson , Gordon Bruce , Alan Nutbeam , Peter Kemp , Daryl Boddy and Carolyn Boddy. They are all Great.


Ardnamurchan Antiques should always be your first stop for the best in Northern Art.

James Downie in my opinion clearly takes his inspiration from the Lowry / Yates School of Northern England Artists. Whilst naive at first glance, you quickly realise that there is considerable skill in his use of perspective, light and impasto to produce paintings that have an immediate appeal.In every painting there are a multitude of little vignettes to enjoy and excite the eye.
