A detailed and observation of a ram and sheep in a rough grass and heather valley with a mountainous backdrop, observed by the meticulous and skilled hand of Charles Jones.

Charles Jones was a London painter of sheep, cattle and deer in landscape settings. He was of Welsh extraction, born near Cardiff and was affectionately know as 'Sheep' Jones due to his skilful and realistic portrayal of sheep. It is the meticulousness of Jones' work which appeals most to the contemporary imagination, with work of consistently high quality that was exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and the British Institution. Charles was also a regular exhibitor at Suffolk Street and the New Watercolour Society as well as various other venues and a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy, Manchester and circa 1890 was awarded a gold medal at Crystal Palace. In addition to London, Charles Jones work was seen far and wide at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Manchester City Art Gallery, the Royal Society of British Artists, Birmingham, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Cambrian Academy, the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours among many others. Charles was a prolific and popular artist.
