Listing Detail Tabs

An impressive work, in the style for which the artist is most celebrated. Linley closely studied black and white illustration and life drawing, and was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists, a fellow of the Royal Society of arts, and at one point, Vice president of the New Zealand academy of fine arts. Te Papa holds a collection of his work.

This work is attributed to Harry Linley Richardson, although the piece itself is unsigned.

Unfortunately, the framing is not perfect, and the work has come misaligned - and the corners have some crumpling.
