Here we have a large original watercolour painting, depicting a farm on the moors. This original work is by the Yorkshire artist Donald Crossley (1932-2014), it is sgined to the lower right and mounted, glazed and framed in a gilt wood frame.
Donald Crossley lived in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire, where he grew up alongside his good friend, poet laureate Ted Hughes. He attended the Hebden Bridge Grammar School, and studied art at evening classes in Todmorden. The photographer Alice Longstaff brought him to wider attention by displaying his work in her shop, and he went on to sell his paintings to admirers and collectors at home and abroad. His works of Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Pennine landscapes are easily recognisable and often exhibited and some have been published by the National Trust. He served on the committee of the Yorkshire Watercolour Society, was a member of the British Watercolour Society and a Fellow of the International Guild of Artists.
