"A Young Cow", oil on canvas | John Carleton Wiggins
"A YOUNG COW" PASTORAL LANDSCAPE BY JOHN CARLETON WIGGINS
In oil on canvas, signed lower left "Carleton Wiggins"
Item # 811PKJ15A
Remaining in fine condition and likely housed in its original and eleborate giltwood frame, this exquisite pastoral landscape by John Carleton Wiggins is titled on its original stretcher bars "A Young Cow - Wiggins", though this appears to be an old framer's notation and may not be the intended title of the work. Like most of his works, it is painted on a WIndsor & Newton prepared canvas, still stamped as such verso. The broad and vigorous brush strokes are full of depth and a chaotic collection of colors, these rendering an impressionistic autumnal grasses that are blowing in the wind coming off of the sea as the young cow looks out over the distant waters. The work is signed lower left in his typical squared script "Carleton Wiggins".
