This is a fine large 129th century landscape oil painting depicting a single figure fishing from a weir ‘On the River Frome’ in the English county of Dorset by the Royal Academy artist Frederick William Whitehead (1853-1938). The painting is signed by the artist and is presented in a fine quality newly commissioned Baroque style gold metal leaf swept frame.

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

Frederick William Whitehead studied at the Académie Julian in Paris for 3 years before returning to England where he struck up a lifelong friendship with the author Thomas Hardy and subsequently painted many views of Dorset and the countryside that inspired Hardy’s 'Wessex' novels.

Whitehead was a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and exhibited his first painting there in 1870 at the age of eighteen. Between 1881 and 1893 he exhibited 12 paintings at the Royal Academy and 17 at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists.
