THE DAY’S BAG

JAMES HARDY JUNIOR

1832 - 1889 dated 1861
Oil on canvas 35 ½ x 28 inches
Framed size 43 3/4 x 35 3/4 inches

James Hardy junior came from an artistic family in Bristol.
His father was the landscape painter James Hardy senior and his brother was Heywood Hardy. His cousin, Frederick Daniel Hardy, was a leading member of the Cranbrook group of artists.
Hardy painted rustic landscapes and hunting scenes, specializing in sporting scenes depicting dogs and game, often set in highland scenery.
He painted both in oil and watercolour and exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1862 and 1886; also at the British Institution, Suffolk Street and the New Watercolour Society where he became a member in 1877.

This particular work is one of his very finest where he exhibits his superb ‘old master’ technique of painting but with the beautiful richness of colour that comes from the Victorian era.

Hardy stayed in Bristol and died there on 4th April, 1889.
