Biography: British 1843-1898.
Joseph Thors is a name recognised as one of the leading Landscape Artists of the Victorian period. A prolofic painter in oils in the English rustic tradition, his scenes are of cottages, figures and animals, painted in a style derivative of the Norwich School.
He lived in London but also worked in the midlands where he made his name and where he is regarded as a member of the Birmingham School. It is known that he travelled to France and he exhibited "View in the Fontainbleau" at the Royal Academy in 1878.
He is a well collected Artist who has inspired the imagination of people who like to dwell for a moment on the rustic charm and hardship of the Victorian period.
This Thors Oil Painting is without doubt one of his finest know pieces and is offered in wonderful condition at a fair asking price.
