Down by the Water
A lovely bright riverscape view, painted in oil in 1957. The artist has used distinct, expressive brushstrokes throughout, giving us the sense that this was painted ‘en plein air’ (the act of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view). The artist has incorporated natural light, colour, and movement into this work, capturing the spirit of the river as it flows through the city. A set of steps can be seen to the right, encouraging us to imagine ourselves having just walked down, taking respite from the hustle and bustle of the busy city above.
The painting is housed in a light grey frame, and both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
Size: 44 x 53.5 cm (including frame)
