ABOUT THE ARTIST
>
Knight was a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, joining in January 1868. He withdrew in 1879 and was re-elected in 1883. He was also elected a member of the Dudley Gallery, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Etchers, the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, the Limners Club and Art-Min-Afon, Betws-y-Coed. In 1874 he was a Royal Manchester Institution prize-winner and in 1891 he won a bronze medal at the Paris Exhibition.[3]
>
At the Royal Academy his works were frequently hung on the line. His work is in the their permanent collection as well as at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery London, Manchester Art Gallery, Walker Art Gallery and other provincial galleries
>
The Manchester School of Painters was formed by a number of disgruntled young vanguard painters in the 1870s. They were deeply influenced by the artist, Joseph Knight who was a successful painter, etcher and photographer. He was the founder member of the Manchester School of Painters. Knight painted how “he” desired and refused to conform to traditional Art School rules and this appealed to his young admirers. Twice weekly they would all meet up at Knight’s studio in York Place behind the Union Chapel in Oxford Road, Manchester to discuss new ways to develop their techniques.

PASTEL WATERCOLOUR & GOUACHE OF A YOUNG TAWNY OWL PERCHED ON A BRANCH
A beautiful example of a young Tawny Owl,which has been superbly hand painted in a medium of pastel watercolour and gouache,being similar to watercolour,but a little thicker stronger colouring.

QUALITY
This painting has been executed in great detail and is a very life like representation of the hunting bird,captured in its typical habitat and finished in colours which add realism and depth to the image.
This example must have taken some hours to paint and has a professional finish,hard to capture with the brush.

FRAME
The frame is the original and has been finished with a cream border over a deep red thin border and has been fully glazed to protect the artist work

The Tawny Owl or Brown Owl (Strix aluco) is a stocky, medium-sized owl commonly found in woodlands across much of Eurasia. Its underparts are pale with dark streaks, and the upperparts are either brown or grey. Several of the eleven recognised subspecies have both variants. The nest is typically in a tree hole where it can protect its eggs and young against potential predators. This owl is non-migratory and highly territorial. Many young birds starve if they cannot find a vacant territory once parental care ceases.

This nocturnal bird of prey hunts mainly rodents, usually by dropping from a perch to seize its prey, which it swallows whole; in more urban areas its diet includes a higher proportion of birds. Vision and hearing adaptations and silent flight aid its night hunting. The Tawny is capable of catching smaller owls, but is itself vulnerable to the Eagle Owl or Northern Goshawk.

Although many people believe this owl has exceptional night vision, its retina is no more sensitive than a human's. Rather, it is its asymmetrically placed ears that are key to its hunting because they give the Tawny Owl excellent directional hearing.

GEORGIAN PASTEL WATERCOLOUR & GOUACHE 19TH CENTURY PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG LADY WEARING PERIOD DRESS & HOLDING FEATHERED HAT 30 X 35 INCHES
A truely amazing Georgian Portrait all hand painted in Pastel,Watercolour and Gouache medium on fine linen canvas,depicting a beautiful young girl wearing a typical period blue dress,seen holding her black feathered hat in hand.

The photogenic nature and quality achieved by the artist is spectacular,with fine attention to detail and accurately presented with good depth and strong colour.

The lower foreground delivering the depth and three diamentional perspective,which is so often difficult to achieve.

The young girl is depicted wearing a tiny looking pair of leather boots,usually hand made and sewn.

The frame is a good example from the period and has been carefully regilded in a gold leaf colour.

The painting has been placed under glass to protect from any smudges occuring and thus has maintained this example in its orignal and overall excellent condition.

A very eyecatching painting very rarely seen in this medium on such a large scale and yet as sharp and vibrant as when first produced,and perfectly captures the moment in time of bygone days.

Measurements Including Frame
Height 35 Inches
Width: 30 Inches

DATE:

We date this stunning portrait around Circa 1830-1840 latest,and as it is unsigned,cannot attribute it to a particular artist,although the standard is of a professional studio.

We think this is one of the best pastels we have ever seen and had to think hard and twice about selling what is a real museum piece worth viewing.
