Frederick James Shields Lakeside Scene

Item Description

Stunningly beautiful enamel on copper plaque by the English painter, illustrator and designer Frederick James Shields (aka James Frederick Shields, 1833-1911).

Set inside a scalloped frame edged with a rope patterned detail, the image is of a lone swan, seen swimmimg across a lake at sunset with trees and a windmill in the background, dark clouds in the sky above and the setting sun reflected on the surface of the water.  

The detail is quite superb with many of the outlines highlighted in finely broken strokes in gold. The foil-backed silvery white of the swan shines out strongly from the muted, late evening colours.

Signed lower right with the Shields monogram and fitted with a ring for hanging. 

Measuring 13 X 7 cm overall with the visible enamel a little over 12 X 6 cm.

Ref: 15329
