Beautifully framed oil on canvas featuring Lake Windermere.
Signed lower left by artist Frank Hider (1861 - 1933). Very good condition with slight chips to gilt frame.

Frank Hider was born in 1861. Censuses vary as to his place of birth, citing Newington, London, Old Kent Road, London and Walworth, Middlesex. His father, George Hider, married Frank's mother, Jane Cansick (1828-1871) on 29 October 1857 in Kennington, London.

George married Henrietta Maria Mackie in 1871. In the 1881 census, when living in Croydon, Surrey, the surname was spelt as Heder. He married Laura Anna Hill in 1885 and they had several children, one of whom, Christopher George Hider, also studied art.

Frank Hider studied at Heatherleys Art School. He travelled through Britain painting rural landscapes and coastal scenes in both oils and watercolours. Hider also visited Italy and Belgium and, although a prolific painter, he rarely exhibited. He became part of the Burnham Beeches colony of painters in Buckinghamshire. His style was similar to that of S Y Johnson, although done in a broader stroke. His oils were often inscribed with the title and location on the reverse. Typical titles were Off the Cornish Coast, Bringing in the Catch and Seagulls Haunt.

Paintings on public view include:

The Sister Rocks Alderney Society Museum
Moonlit Street Rufford Old Hall
Splash Point Towner Gallery, Eastbourne

His work is sold regularly at Christies and other top auction houses.
The signature M C Hider is thought to be a pseudonym.

Hider lived for many years in Forest Gate, West Ham, Essex and died
there in 1933.
