Painting

Incredible British Tonalist Landscape
1820-1845, Active, British

Oil on canvas, 16 x 24 inches, signed and dated 1851 lower right. Although initially known for his sporting scenes his work really excels in his atmospheric landscapes. The powerful light of the sunset reflecting off the dark, rugged landscape suggests qualities similar to Joseph M.W. Turner, the father of British Romanticism. The human in this scene is of small consequence compared to the majestic beauty surrounding her. Jones exhibited work at the British Institute, The Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists.

Peter Ilstead was an important Danish mezzotint artist in the early 20th century, whose work is credited with starting the 'Copenhagen Interior School' style of painting and printmaking. He specialized in quiet, tranquil indoor scenes with an atmospheric, Vermeer-like quality.
