Holder, Edward Henry (English)
1847 - 1922

English landscape, oil on canvas, signed l/l,
20" x 30" sight, 26" x 36" framed.

About the Painting: The canvas is in excellent condition, as is the original Art Deco frame. Stylistically, this painting suggests an execution date c. 1910 - 1920.

About the Artist: "Yorkshire landscape Painter.  Born in Scarborough.  Exhib. 1864-93 at SS, also ar RA, 1872-73.  Subjects mainly coastal views in Yorkshire.  Lived in London and Reigate, and then visited South Africa, where he carried out many commissions.  In 1917 he exhibited a view of Victoria Falls on the Zambesi at the RA.  Several of his works are in York AG."  Source:  Wood, Christopher, The Dictionary of Victorian Painters.

Holder's works are in many public galleries throughout the United Kingdom, but a full accounting of his career has still to be written.

If you can't afford a Constable (who can?) this is the next best thing!  A marvelous rendition of the English countryside complete with a "gaggle" of geese, children playing, a man in a cart, horses grazing, and houses in the middle and far distance.   All of that, plus billowing clouds, in a palette reminiscent of Constable and you have a focal point for that favorite room which could provide a lifetime of pleasure!  This painting was acquired from a Canadian dealer in 1998. He had purchased it from the estate of the original owner, who bought it in England shortly after its execution.
