John Charlton (1849-1917)
The Jolly Waggoner

Medium: Oil on canvas
Size without frame: 24.0" x 36.0"
Size including frame: 30.0" x 42.0"

Named after the Pub, this is a prime work and shows a farmer with his Sussex or Suffolk timber drey taking a pint after a hard days work. Charlton is recognised as one of the finest observers of horse and hound and the animals in this painting are exceptional. In a very good frame and signed with the usual monogramme that he 'tilted' to the slope of the painting. All in all an exceptional painting. His in-depth biography is well worth reading, the best reference being 'The Artists of Northumbria' by Marshall Hall.
