"See-Saw". - Antique Print from 1870

Genuine antique
dated:

1870

Description:

Victorian engraving of children playing on a see saw.

The spectator in this painting smilingly supports a little girl on the felled tree-trunk on which two boys are see-sawing. A woman in the background, presumably the little girl’s mother, is bending over and almost fading into the other trees nearby. The figures that emerge from the landscape do so because they are picked out by touches of red, white and black, the flesh tones, and because of the silhouette effect of the little boy outlined against the evening sky.  

Biography:

Thomas Webster RA (1800-1886)

English painter of genre scenes of school and village life, many of which became popular through prints. He lived for many years at the artists’ colony at Cranbrook in Kent.
