An original 1945 oil painting, Yard, Three Swans Hotel, Market Harborough.
A vibrant oil painting, saturated in colour. The scene shows a backyard view at the historic Three Swans Hotel, formerly the Swan Inn, at Market Harborough in Leicestershire. The painting's selective palette and graphic modernity belies the Swan's rich history as a coaching inn of the late 1700s and early 1800s. In oil on wooden panel.
Signed indistinctly lower right, possibly 'G Claxon'. Inscribed and dated verso; 'The Yard of the 3 Swans Market Harborough' and 'July 9/45'.
Overall in good condition for its age, there is the odd scattered loss of paint, and slight scratching to the paint surface at the upper right - which does not adversely affect the image overall.
33.5cm x 41cm.
