George Henry - Through the Woods

Through the woods, 1891

George Henry RA RSA RSW (1858-1943)
signed and dated 1891, oil on canvas,
56 x 61cm (22 x 24ins)

"... Pure colour highlights lift it beyond the tonal concerns of the mid-1880's naturalism of the Glasgow Boys, the warm hues creating a purely decorative surface pattern, texture and shallow picture space which elicited Richard Muther's 'persian carpet' observation, as he selected Glasgow pictures to exhibit in Germany." from Bonhams catalogue notes
