Description: Walter Elmer Schofield (American 1867-1944): Eastby Crag Embsay Nr. Skipton, oil on canvas signed c.1906/07, 60cm x 90cm Provenance: Schofield born in Philadelphia to English emigre parents studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Arts 1889-1892 moving on to the Academie Julian in Paris. In 1896 he married his English wife Murielle Redmayne of Southport Lancashire. In 1903 they settled in St. Ives. This view of Eastby was sketched while on holiday in Ingleton (Embsay Station on the railway line to Ingleton overlooks Eastby) during the summer of 1906 and painted in his St. Ives studio 1906/7, becoming part of Schofield's Cornish Show Day Exhibition in St. Ives. In 1907 the family re-located to Ingleton bringing the painting with them which was sold locally in 1910 for £800, then remained neglected and undiscovered for many years. Schofield is considered by many critics to be one of the daring innovators among American Impressionist landscape painters. Sold with two exhibition catalogues 'Bold Impressionist' - Brandywine River Museum 1983 and 'Proud Painter of Modest Lands' - Valerie Livingston, Moravian College 1988
