A wonderful study of 2 white swans grazing in a lush garden, set against a historical building.
On this fine morning in Spring, a graceful pair of swans have just emerged from the nearby lake, and have come to the lawn to nibble on grass. With no one else in sight, they are roaming freely in the area, with not a worry in the world.
The artist has selected a beautiful naturalistic and earthy colour palette in this work; and has creatively dabbed a mix of clay, beige and sand colours to render the rough and granular nature of stone on the historical building.
He has also painted the grass in a similar fashion – using different shades of green and some hints of beige to highlight its dense appearance.
This mid 20th century painting is an oil on canvas, and is signed on the lower right.
It is complemented by its gilt frame, and measures 73.5 x 62.5 cm (including frame)
