English Folk Art Oil on Canvas

Beautiful example of a British folk art painting of an unknown artist showing a scene where several children try to protect their friend against a boy who wants to start a fight. The term folk art defines a variety of works usually designed by individuals who did not complete a formal art training. Usually this art is not based on measurements or design but on feelings. It does not fit in with the standards of realism and it often shows a flattened perspective.
All these characteristics can be found on this painting. The childrens' scale are in no realistic relation to the relatively small architectural parts in the background. The artist has focused on capturing the emotions of his figures and tries to reveal them in a rather ingenuous manner, in their visual expressions and gestures.
