This delightful John Dyer painting of Falmouth in Cornwall, features the view across the river towards Trefusis Point. Two people wave their arms excitedly in the foreground of the painting, celebrating the sunshine and colour of Cornwall. The palm trees take our view out across the houses to the colourful boats in the sparkling sea beyond. Perfect.
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.
