A fine oil on canvas laid to board of a female nude by Arthur Spooner. The painting is typical of the impressionist work of Spooner although here in exceptional detail and the layering of colour. The work is signed to the lower right. The painting is mounted in the original gilt frame and which does have some losses but the whole has a great untouched country house appeal.
Arthur Spooner (1873–1962) was a British Impressionist painter from Nottingham, England. Spooner was born in Nottingham and trained at the Nottingham School of Art (now part of Nottingham Trent University) in the late 19th century. He later taught landscape and figurative painting there in the early 20th century. Arthur Spooner was a member of the Nottingham Society of Artists. He painted The Goose Fair, Nottingham in 1926. The painting was sold at Christie’s in 2004 and is displayed in Nottingham Castle. His work is varied and enormously popular.
The painting is ready to hang and in good condition. C.1920.
