A Good 19th Century Oil on Canvas, British School
From our European Collection, a good and sizable 19th century oil on canvas, British School, depicting gothic ruins over an aqueduct at moonlight. The artist's skillful use of depth perspective, along with adept use of various shades of grays and blacks, all contrasted and backlit by a cloudy moonlit sky, combine effectively to create a wonderfully evocative and somber scene that captures well a time and place from centuries past.

Size and Condition: 30 x 25 inches. As the close-ups show there is crazing / craquelure throughout the piece, along with what could be small random areas of old touch-up / inpainting.
