This Cornish seaside love story painting by artist John Dyer features the beautiful lighthouse at Godrevy in Cornwall. The painting is focused on an embrace as a couple stand central in the image on a red fishing boat. Spring daffodils burst into life in the foreground. Symbolism & narrative build with colour & content to create this romantic but dynamic painting of the stunning coast of Cornwall.
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
