A wonderful 19C depiction of the Scottish highlands. In the distance are the pink tinged hills and the ruins of an old castle. It must be end of day. In the mid- ground and foreground are small boats and a fisherman and scattered ruins. The fact that the fisherman is standing by a small waterfall would suggest that he is hoping for a large salmon. The medium is oil on board and the technique is exceptional. It is vibrant. It has great energy. I have had this for many years and bought it at a good auction in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware in the 70s. I encourage you to look at the detailed pictures as my main image is not the best. I had a hard time photographing it but the details are good. It is in the original gilt frame with artist's name, A. Lewis, on the plaque. It measures 27.5 inches, 69.85cms, wide by 20 inches, 50.8cms, high and 3.25 inches, 8.25cms, deep. This is frame to frame. The condition is fine. Provenance. C.R. Fenton & Co, Beachy Road, Old Ford. Thank you for looking and if you have any questions please ask.


Bought in the 70s from a Rehobeth Beach, Delaware auction house.

What does this mean?

Dear Peta,

Thank you for the additional image.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil on canvas with the measurements of 20 x 27.5 inches. The painting depicts and landscape which could be in Scotland and is signed with the name "C L Lewis". This artwork was highly possible made by Charles James Lewis (English, 1830-1892), who mainly depicted British landscapes and cities in his art. This painting was made in the second half of the 19th century.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 600 to 1.200 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
