Canterbury Meadows is a large and imposing painting of rural life near Canterbury in Kent in the manner of two of the 19th centuries best regarded artists – Frederick Richard Lee and Thomas Sidney Cooper. This picture was painted by either a student or close associates of both Cooper and Lee, the cattle composition being classic T S Cooper.

Frederick Richard Lee was born in Barnstaple, Devon in 1798, He was enrolled as a student in the Royal Academy in January 1818, aged nineteen. Although no dated paintings are recorded from this time, by the time of his election as an Associate of the Royal Academy (A.R.A.) on 3 November 1834, at least six dated paintings existed. Lee was elected to full membership of the Royal Academy on 10 February 1838. He collaborated on many occasions with T.S Cooper.
Thomas Sidney Cooper was born in Canterbury in 1803, his early life was marred by poverty. He was educated at the RA schools, where he was encouraged by Sir Thomas Lawrence. In 1827 he moved to Brussels where he taught art. It was at this time he met the animal painter Eugene Verboeckhoven, who strongly influenced his work. In 1831 Cooper returned to London, and he first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1833, before the accession of Queen Victoria, and exhibited his last picture a year after her death in 1902, a very long career.
Excellent. The painting has been cleaned, old re-lining with a in new English made swept gilt wood & gesso frame.
