    This is a well excecuted small street scene oil on canvas signed H Bright (Probably Henry Bright !810-1873). The signiture is very similar to that of Henry Bright the well known Norwich School artist who is better know for landscapes but did produce works similar to this. The painting depicts 4 females in early 19th century dress talking outside houses of 15th century origin. The house in the foreground has smoke rising from the chimney.
    A charming picture would grace any home. The painting measures 23cm x 18cm unframed and 29cm x 25cm framed.
    Effect after rain
    Bright painted in various locations in England, Scotland, Wales and the continent, working in oils, watercolour, chalk and pencil. During a few of these sketching expeditions he was accompanied by J M W Turner, no less, with whom he had struck up a friendship. Bright's work was also highly regarded by John Ruskin.

     
    Bright's first major exhibition was at the British Institution, London in 1836. He became a member of the New Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1839, where he exhibited until 1844. Although his obituary in The Art Journal states that he did not exhibit in oils until the Royal Academy exhibition of 1845, this is not certain[4]
     
    Bright developed friendships with leading artists, including Samuel Prout, Henry Jutsum, David Cox, George Lance, William Collingwood Smith, William Leighton Leitch and James Duffield Harding. Bright was influenced by Harding’s oil and pencil technique and, like him, he issued a number of drawing-books in the 1840s. His use of chalk and stump on buff paper is similar to that of Robert Leman (1799–1863), while John Middleton strongly influenced his use of watercolour, particularly in 1847.
     
    Bright’s name was also associated with the manufacture of coloured crayons. He established a profitable career teaching the titled and well-to-do, many of whom became his patrons. In 1844 Queen Victoria purchased Bright’s Entrance to an Old Prussian Town (London, Royal Collection) from the New Society of Painters in Watercolours. He also received several commissions from the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia.
     
    His professional success extended to producing works jointly with other artists, including John Frederick Herring and William Shayer, where Bright usually contributed the background. Throughout his career in London, Bright maintained links with the Norwich artists.
