John Donaldson (b.1946) - 20th Century Oil, Unloading the Catch
DescriptionA very fine 20th century oil by the British artist John Donaldson. Here the artist has captured a historical scene with fishermen unloading their daily catch on a rocky beach. With delicate brushwork and fine attention to detail. Wonderfully presented in a large deep gilt frame. Signed. On canvas on stretchers.
Overall the condition is very good. There is a small faint crack to the paint at the upper area, however this is very minimal. Inspection under UV light shows no sign of restoration. Small marks to the frame, including a small loss to the upper right corner.
