`Peel Stack, The Isle of Man`

Frederick Wild 1908-1910

A spectacular large oil by Victorian Lancashire artist Frederick Wild depicting a view of Peel Stack in the Isle of Man. This is the largest painting I have seen by Wild. A wealth of detail in this painting -from the flowers on the clifftop to the nests of the gulls which can be seen wheeling over the cliffs. As usual with this artist the location is clearly written verso and the dates 1908 and 1910 -I presume this would denote that it took him a couple of years to complete! Painting is in excellent condition, clean bright colour. Frame is a modern reproduction heavy antique style in good condition and with no missing moulding - suits the painting perfectly. Looks amazing on the wall!

Frederick Wild was a Lancashire painter who exhibited at Manchester City Art Gallery in the early 1900`s. He seems to have favoured the West coast and Wales for his subject matter. Lived in Bolton, Lancs
