Edwin Henry Boddington, British 1836-1905
$7500 pair

Pair of paintings, each oil on canvas, 24" x 36" and in the original frames, approx. 33" x 43"--each signed and dated. A true pair. Edwin Boddington, son of Henry Boddington, comes from the illustrious Williams family of landscape painters. He was a pupil of his father and became a competent painter in his own right. Edwin was strongly influenced by his father and he often painted similar compositions. Edwin even finished some of his fatherís canvases after his death. Despite his father's influence, Edwin Boddington developed a very personal and recognizable style. He usually painted his river scenes in very dark shades of green and brown, such as in this tranquil depiction of fishermen. Biography from AskArt: He exhibited throughout England, most notably eleven times at the famed Royal Academy, 45 times at Suffolk Street, and twenty-five times at the British Institution. These were probably three of the four best galleries in Great Britain in his lifetime.
