Cathedral Fine Art
"The Days Catch"
English School, mid 19th Century
oil painting on canvas
unframed measurements: 33.5cm by 39cm
Fine mid 19th century very original oil painting, depicting this still life arrangement. I say "still life' but there is of course much life within the painting in the form of these goldfish swimming in their bowl - very much alive! The painting is a most bizarre arrangement. The beautifully painted carp laying next to the goldfish bowl, the duck and the cock pheasant on the tablecloth and then in the corner is a mossy birds nest. It is a completely unique composition and not like one we have ever come across.
What is certain, is the incredible quality with which it is painted. Each item is meticulously detailed and depicted with tremendous quality; especially the fishes. The painting can accurately be dated to within the years of 1841-1873, from the canvas makers stamp verso - "Thomas Miller, 56 Long Acre, London". Mr Miller was only at that address between the years of 1841-1873, which helps us place a timeframe on the canvas's age. As to its artist, the painting is unsigned but it is without any doubt, superbly painted.
The painting requires restoration and the canvas is loose on the wooden stretcher, Much paint loss to the right hand side as well as other areas. Very much restorable but does require work.
