A S Burns RWS (1911-1987) - Signed Mid 20th Century Watercolour, Overgrown Road



Burns is known for his large-scale, expressive watercolours, and this energetic study is no different. With flowing brush strokes not dissimilar to Munch, violets, lime greens, and a carefully selected rainbow of other tones are bashfully orchestrated into an impressionistic rendition of an overgrown driveway. The artwork is finished with hidden graphite details and is signed in the bottom right-hand corner. Well presented in a white moulded frame with a gilded strip and a cream and white double mount.

On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. Some mount burn is present.


54 x 77cm (21.3" x 30.3")
Framed Size: 80.5 x 100.5cm (31.7" x 39.6")
