"Autumn in an English Village", Watercolour by Calverley Artist, Fred Swaine
Description:
Undated. This small but detailed watercolour painting is the work of Calverley artist, Fred Swaine. He painted many scenes of Calverley and the surrounding locality and so we would be interested to know the location of this one. Fred Swaine (1858-1942) had lived and worked in Calverley all his life. He began work as a weaver at the age of 12 and progressed to the occupation of loom tuner and, eventually, to that of a power loom overlooker. However, Fred Swaine is best known for his detailed work depicting the 19th and early 20th century life and landscape of Calverley, offering a window onto a bygone time.
