2042/19: W. H. Midwood (attributed): âThe Sailorâs Returnâ an interesting unsigned OIL PAINTING on canvas which depicts a typical Victorian interior scene, with a father, showing his displeasure as he returns home to his cottage to discover the returning sailor apparently courting his daughter! Good attention to detail. 23 x 19 ins (58x48cms) including the frame. *William Henry MIDWOOD flourished 1867-1885; he was a figure and genre painter who lived in London and had a keen eye for detail. His work often displays a sense of humour mixed with sentimentality and as a result he became a popular artist in his lifetime.
