This is a fine large scale oil painting on canvas by the Kentish artist David Mead.

The painting depicts a lavish green and brown autumnal view, with the majority of the trees wearing their autumn leaves, with a majestic oak in the right foreground.

Below the trees and to the left of a path, lies a still pool in whose quiet waters the trees are reflected.

Presented within a gilt decorative swept frame in keeping with the period produced.
Very good condition with no repairs to the canvas or paint loss.

There is a little minor craquelure.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy and one of his paintings is in Horsham Museum.

A large proportion of his paintings are in private collections.
