Very good condition; original frame shows it’s age but is still presentable. There are a couple of tiny paint losses in the upper-middle section of the sky – barely discernable in the image and not a distraction when the painting is viewed from a few feet.

Barry Peckham was born in 1945 at Ashurst on the edge of New Forest in Hampshire, England. Educated at Colbury and Bartley, he began painting actively in the 1960s and by 1974 began exhibiting in London. To support his meagre earnings from his painting he took up various jobs in the building trades. In 1979 he set up his own picture framing business which allowed him more time for his landscape, marine and equestrian paintings. His hard work paid off when he came to the notice of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and The Society of Equestrian Artists. In 1989 he won both the Cuneo Prize and The Tom Coates Award. Today, Peckham has achieved international recognition and holds many awards. He now exhibits regularly at The Royal Institute of Painters in Oil, The New English Art Club, The Royal Academy, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolor, The Royal Society of Marine Painters, the Pastel Society, and The Royal West of England Academy.

Note: This is a fine example of Barry Peckham’s early work from which his later painting has evolved – from the same English landscape where can be found the rivers and shores, pastures and ponies that were his primary subjects.
