This grand 19th century oil on canvas, attributed to Henry Pether (1800 -1880), depicts a serene river landscape basking in the ethereal glow of moonlight, with a majestic cathedral towering in the background. The artwork is noted for its excellent quality and is a characteristic example of Pether’s nocturnal landscapes, known for their tranquil beauty and masterful light effects. The painting remains in immaculate condition and is enclosed in its original ornate antique gilt frame.

Pether's work is renowned for its ability to capture the silent poetry of night scenes, and this landscape, with its subtle interplay of light and shadow, perfectly encapsulates his skill in rendering the peacefulness and sublime nature of the nocturnal world.
