Superb (circa 1920) original oil painting on board of a gorgeous young redhead woman riding her horse in the ocean at sunset by George Owen Wynne Apperley (1884-1960). This painting was acquired from Leighton Fine Art in the UK and we believe this originally came from a private collection in France. Apperley was a painter and draughtsman born in Ventnor, Isle of Wight. Although mainly self-taught, he did study with the Herkomer School at Bushey. Apperley spent much of his life in Spain, where he painted and exhibited his works. He was honoured by the Spanish government, and exhibited extensively at Leicester and Walker’s Galleries, RI and RSA. Apperley was adept at catching the sun-filled landscapes of the Mediterranean area, and his work is in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
