Available for sale from Big Sky Fine Art; this original oil painting in the manner of the Victorian English 19th Century artist W.Quilp or Hilton Lark Pratt 1838 - 1875 is by an unknown hand and dates from the late 19th century.
When acquired by us the painting was contained in a very dilapidated 19th century pine and glazed Hogarth type frame where it had been undisturbed until now. When the painting was removed from this dilapidated frame it was found that the canvas had been cut down from a much larger painting and then mounted on cardboard. The painted surface was very clean and in good condition. The only identifying marks was a wax seal with the initials OFC.

The original Hogarth frame has been discarded and today the painting is float mounted and supplied in a contemporary but complimentary and sympathetic frame (which is shown in these photographs), mounted using conservation materials and behind non-reflective Tru Vue UltraVue® UV70 glass.

This is a fine example of a work of this genre and highly decorative.; an oil on canvas painting, mounted on card. It depicts a rather splendid cockerel standing on a grassy mound against a tranquil rural landscape. The rooster appears to be a young bird at the height of his glory. He is healthy and alert, with bright red comb, golden plumage on his neck, upper wings and back, and shiny blue/black plumage on his breast, wing tips, trimmed tail and legs. He was no doubt a prize bird, valued for his heritage and progeny.
