We are delighted to offer for sale this absolutely charming oil on canvas genre painting entitled "The Cherry Vendor" - attributed to William Collins, RA (1788-1847).

A London born artist, Collins was an English landscape and genre painter.  During the 19th Century, his works were more sort after than those of world famous artists, namely Constable and Turner.  He was an informal pupil of George Morland and in 1807 entered the schools of the Royal Academy.  In 1809 he was awarded a medal in the life school.

He provided paintings to many high profile individuals of the day including Sir Robert Peel and the Marquis of Stafford.

Well travelled throughout his career in both England, Scotland and further a field in Europe, he sadly passed away in February 1847.

Examples of his work are held by the British Museum, Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum in addition to many other locations.
