Highland Glen- Oil On Canvas by Thomas J Banks 1886
An attractive framed oil on canvas painting by Thomas J Banks. A nicely executed atmospheric highland scene signed and dated lower right ’86. The scene with cloud-shrouded mountains in the distance and a waterfall flowing through the wooded trees below. Good colour and depth. Would suit a modern or period interior. Thomas Joseph Banks, sometimes known as “Thomas John Banks”, was a British portrait and landscape painter. Mainly active in the 1880’s. He died at Goathland in Yorkshire and an obituary notice in The British Architect described him as “a Yorkshire artist of considerable local repute”. Dimensions: H 22.5 in. x W 18.5 in. x D 2 in.
