"The Journey Home" Oil on Panel by Michael Matthews
A shepherd drives his flock home through a landscape covered by the winter snow, this oil on panel is an excellent example of the work of the talented Michael Matthews. This atmospheric oil painting is surrounded by a pierced gilt frame. Michael Matthews was born in Stratford on Avon and attended Stratford Grammar School, as did the most renowned son of that town, William Shakespeare. In the early 1980's Matthews moved to America where his work was exhibited in galleries throughout the United States, from New York in the east to Carmel in the west, Washington state in the north and to Arizona where he opened his own gallery. His work is held in many private collections in America and Europe. This winter landscape, inspired by his native Warwickshire, and signed and dated 1983 was a private commission and has been in the same private collection ever since. A wonderful oil painting to hang in any setting.
