Henry Schoute, Horses in a Field, Late 19th Century, Oil on Canvas
A late 19th century oil painting by Belgian artist Henry Schouten (1864-1927). The scene depicts two work horses in the wilderness. One of the horses is drinking water from a paddle in the foreground. In the background civilization is evident: A group of shepherds with cows in the meadow is visible. The natural colors compliment the realistic image and soft brushstrokes of Schouten’s work. Signed lower right “Henry Schouten”.
Very good condition, some minor wear consistent with age.
He is best known as a painter for his beautiful landscapes, which mostly featured animals and shepherds (pastoral landscapes).
He participated in several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at The John Davies Gallery, Morten-in-Marsh, United Kingdom. In 1882, Schouten exhibited with the Union of Arts (l’union des arts) in Brussels.
