Delightful small oil painting of a man fishing in the grounds of 'Hardwicke' which we believe are the grounds of Hardwick Hall, Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Lovely detail to this piece, the lone fisherman contemplating on the bank of the water sitting on a small stool with his fishing tackle laid ground. Colours are nice and vivid and the water has a lovely tranquil movement with glistening light relecting. Trees and shrubs to the back drop.
