Charming small painting of a rural country scene in England, probably near Bristol at the end of the 19th Century. Two horses are pulling the haywain to the hay stacks on a beautiful late summer's day. These hay stacks were found all over the country and were made of sound structure to stop the hay getting wet over the winter. The one in front has been finished with its thatched crown, while the one behind is still being filled with hay.
This painting is unsigned but is a part of the collection of landscapes by Henry Harris belonging to one owner. It is in very good condition with a very good vintage frame.
