Norfolk Windpump, oil on canvas, signed initials R.C. 20th C Norfolk School. c1930.
Dimensions : Stretcher : 400mm x 300mm x 15mm. Weight : 0.380kg net.
Condition/Notes : The oil on canvas is in quite good condition with no paint loss and good colour. There is intermittent gilt lining near the edges of the canvas from a previous frame which has been removed at some time and some slight paint loss revealing the canvas near the edge but this will be concealed by reframing. The painting depicts a typical two storey Norfolk drainage windpump with a boat shaped cap against an overcast and sullen sky; a church steeple can be seen to the left of the structure and a dirt-track runs towards the viewer. The painting is signed with initials R.C. in the lower rh corner. The canvas is stapled to the stretcher around the edges and loose folded over the back. Below the signature on the outer edge is written in pencil handscript what appears to be "ZILVER"; no other script is visible. The canvas is in good condition. Overall, an interesting historical painting which will benefit from identification of the artist and locaton of the windpump. Please view the images below :
