Rt Rev Cuthbert Bardsley (1907-1991) - Mid 20th Century Oil, Beach Shack
DescriptionAn expressive coastal landscape in oil with impasto, by The Right Reverend Cuthbert Bardsley, Bishop of Coventry (1907-1991). Bardsley has a fine command of composition and form, and employs an emotive impasto style in order to add a sense of dynamic movement to the setting. The tree to the foreground and the rough headland in the distance are both evocative of a Mediterranean landscape. Signed. On canvas on stretchers.
In very good condition overall. Only some light scuffing to the corners of the canvas.
