AUCTION 20

25. FANE, W. Original watercolor with white gouache highlights, on thick paper, forest scene with foreground dominated by a majestic redwood tree, man on a dark horse, and another white horse following, two horses in background. Signed at lower left: W. Fane 1870. 49.5 x 32 cm. Residue on verso (probably due to removal from an album), otherwise very fine, handsome, and skillfully executed.

     Possibly the work of Major-General Walter Fane (1828-1885) of Fulbeck Hall, Lincolnshire, a distinguished and well-travelled British officer, who served primarily in the Madras Staff Corps in India. Similar in technique to other works by Fane, whose travels to China and Japan took him to the Pacific.
