John Linfield (b.1930) NEAC - Signed & Framed 1988 Gouache, Carnevale
DescriptionAn atmospheric gouache study showing a Venetian carnival scene by listed British artist John Linfield (b.1930). The scene shows figures 'off to the masked ball', as inscribed on the reverse. The vibrant colour palette and impressionist brushstrokes perfectly capture the atmosphere of a busy Venetian canal. Venice is a recurring subject matter for Linfield and it is clear he felt a great creative affinity with the area. Signed and dated. On wove.
There is some discolouration to the mount and surface scratches to the frame. Overall the appearance is very good.
