Original Painting by John Dyer. A Feast of Food, Italy.
Ripe plump aubergines & red peppers feature in this stunning Italian landscape painting by ethnobotanical artist John Dyer. Olive trees line the hills in the background & pencil pines soar to the sky. Wonderful shadows and a glowing light capture the harvest in Italy. Italian farm characters pick the tomatoes and aubergines and an old farmer stands with his stick in the corner. An Italian delight.
This special painting was commissioned by the Eden Project for a major exhibition by the artist for Word Food Week. The writers groups Scavel an Gow wrote new stories about each painting in the exhibition.
