Signed Artist Print. Amazing Mayhem in the Maze in May, Glendurgan Garden by John Dyer.
One of John Dyer's most famous images. The original hangs with the National Trust at Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall and features on the official web site for the nation of important art in public collections. Families and children race around the maze getting increasingly hot - one girl has even lost her top ! Flowers and tropical palms abound and black birds and seagulls look on at the crazy fun.
Painted in 2005 and purchased by The National Trust
Held in the public collection of Glendurgan garden
"It is a very special painting of one of the most entertaining, visually exciting and historically important gardens in Cornwall, and for the National Trust and the team at Glendurgan to be so inspired by it that they wish to own it is not only very exciting, but a real honour." John Dyer 2005.
Steven Porter, Head Gardener at Glendurgan says:
"We were mesmerised by the painting when we first saw it and we are over the moon to now have it on display at Glendurgan. It will prove to be popular with our visitors, and hopefully be an image that people will want to take home with them. We are also using the painting to kick-start a collaboration with King Charles Primary School in Falmouth, of which John is a governor. We aim to develop the pupil's interest in plants, gardening and the environment. It is hoped that this painting will inspire the children from this and other schools to paint and take an active and creative interest in the garden."
