Oil on Board; Sporting Landscape 'Cubbing at Wiston' by Sam Marriott (British 1932-1997)
Circa 1980. Landscape with the Fernie Hunt in the distance in a fine gold leaf frame.
Dimensions: 25" x 30" overall
Mostly in private collections Sam's work was highly sort after while he was alive. Sam was a keen follower of the Fernie Hunt in Leicestershire and would quite often be seen early in the morning sketching away. Sam Studied with John Kenny alongside Neil Cawthorne, he only had a few exhibitions and hardly promoted his pictures as he was forever critical of his own work. His ability to catch full blooded life in his oils was second to none and his beautiful Seago style landscapes are tremendously pleasing.
