The impressionist style of this piece tremendously captures the hustle and bustle of a village fair, which this artist has depicted with brilliant detail. The scene truly immerses the viewer, and you can almost hear the cheers and laughter of the crowds whilst looking into it.
Richard Peter Richards (1840-1877) was a British painter known for his wonderfully detailed depictions of life in rural England, which are frequently sold in the thousands at auction. This vibrant and theatrical piece would be a marvellous addition to an elegant home.
