Fine Art Dealer of 19th and 20th Century Oil Paintings
The clocks have sprung forward and Spring is now officially here, even though it is still a bit chilly.
This painting, by Claude Cardon, sums up this feeling beautifully. It is a lovely tranquil pastoral scene with apple blossom and sheep, which so typifies his work. Claude Cardon exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1893- 1913, at the Royal Society of British Artists and at the Walker Art Gallery and the Manchester City Art Gallery. He was renowned for his exquisite and gentle portrayal of domestic animals.
