This charming pair of oil on board landscapes each depicts vibrant landscape scenes, stylistically in line with other, seemly rare examples of priors landscape paintings. Known mostly for his portraits, priors landscape paintings take on the same energetic and animated colorful qualities of his more well-known portraits of Children and women.

Dated 1823, these portraits would have been painted by Prior the first year he had started painting at the age of 17.

Based on the traits of these paintings, they do appear to be of the period and 19th century inline with the inscribed date and in line with other examples of signatures by Mr. Prior.
