Michael Barnfather (b.1934) - 1965 Oil, Lake District near Ambleside
DescriptionAn expressive rural landscape view with a small hamlet of buildings, by the well-listed artist Michael Barnfather (b. 1934). The artist has chosen to use geometric forms, a signature trait of Barnfather work, with a view of stone buildings, masonry and large sparse trees. Several techniques have been used in order to produce a variety of textures, giving the painting a dynamic feel. The label to the reverse is inscribed with the title, and also reads 'Bought at Liberty's 6/8/65'. Well-presented in a painted wooden frame with fabric detail, as shown. Signed and dated and inscribed. On board.
In fine condition overall. The fabric on the mount has discoloured, and there are marks and losses to the paint on the corners of the frame.

Michael Barnfather is a leading English landscape painter. Born in 1934 in the town of Ilkeston, Barnfather trained at the Derby College of Art before working as a technical artist for Rolls Royce. Intense, but with a quiet manner, he is most caring about his work, and spends a great deal of time studying the subjects of his landscapes. He has an eye for the finesse of a picture and has applied his talent in the layout of his home and the gardens around his studio. He has submitted his work to various exhibitions and galleries.
It has often been said of an artist that he is in love with his model. Michael Barnfather's heart has long since been lost to the most alluring of models, for he is enduringly in love with our beautiful English landscape.
