Well executed painting depicting a charming rural scene with a seated girl reading a letter (?) to a young boy, overlooked by an older man holding a red knapsack & rod. No visible signature but believed to be by an English artist. There is a handwritten reference to 'David Cox 1783-1859' to the reverse of frame. Please note that I have not been able to investigate this further. Under glass, matted and housed within a gilt wood frame with wood backing - ready to hang.
