ALFRED GLENDENING, JR. RBA ~ Gathering Spring Flowers by the Sea

Acknowledged as one of the finest English Victorian landscape and genre painters, Alfred A. Glendening was the son of Alfred Glendening, Sr.  Born in 1861, he received  his art training from his father.  His painting “Haymaking” was purchased for the Nation by the Chantrey Bequest in 1898 and he was elected a member of the Royal  Academy in 1890.

He exhibited widely both in London and in the provinces including: Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham, Manchester City Art Gallery, and at the Royal Academy with the following titles: “A Woodland Path”, 1881; “Early Spring”, 1884; “Roses”, 1890; “The Edge of the Heath”, 1891; “The Miller’s Daughter”, 1904; etc.

This rendering of olde England is superb in quality. On viewing this delightful example of his work, Glendening’s meticulous technique and finish are, as always, breathtaking.  Painted in a strong and rich style giving careful attention to perspective and detail, this work combines fluency and tone.

This example represents a painting of the highest and most admired quality.  It is signed and dated by the artist and is presented in pristine condition in a fine period frame.  Frost & Reed Label verso.
