British Painting by Philip Gregory Needell Espalion on the River Lot
This is an original work of art, oil painting on artist cardboard, signed by P. G. Needell, British artist born 1886 – 1974. It is titled on the back “The Old Red Stone Bridge over the R. Lot at Espalion No 1 PG Needell (Study for the oil Painting)”.
He is a known painter, watercolourist, engraver, lithographer, and draughtsman. He served in WW1 in the British Navy. He is listed in the important E. Benizit Dictionary. He made many trips to France. This painting is No 1, because it is a smaller version of a larger work, that sold at Christies Auction in a British & Victorian Pictures Sale Nov 8, 2000. The painting measures 11 x 9 inches, 23 x 28 cm, without the frame. It is framed in an old wood frame with gold paint, the picture is held in with square nails.
In good condition, the artist board is slightly bow inward. Overall, a good look, a good quality piece.
I suggest googling Espalion on the River Lot, there are fabulous photos of this place. Circa 1940.
