“ Chippendale Footbridge, Surrey.” The war was drawing to a close. May would bring an end to years of conflict…the nation was fatigued . Despite frightful loss, some areas of rural England retained their tranquil beauty. This wonderful peice captures the Surrey countryside late that spring. Oil on canvas, it is signed with initials “AH” and dated “1945.” Additionally it is inscribed indistinctly on verso in pencil. 26 x 33 in exceptional English Arts and Crafts frame with gilded sand corners circa 1910.
