ORIGINAL LANDSCAPE PAINTING
Depicting a tree in the depths of a Yorkshire Winter in the middle of a field with the suggestion of a village behind. Potentially Castle Bolton or another North Yorkshire village.
The artist has skilfully used free and quick strokes to capture the character of the tree bringing it alive using a muted colour palette of different washes and scratchy ink to define the branches.
George Jackson (1898-1974) was a well-known member of the North Yorkshire group of artists known as The Castle Bolton Art Group alongside Fred Lawson, Muriel Metcalfe and George Graham.
Signed to the lower right and dated 1947.
Framed and glazed in a decorative maple frame.
The painting is in great vintage condition with no damage and only minimal wear commensurate with age. The frame is in similarly good order.
Overall measurements 57cm x 45cm x 2cm.
