Original Painting by John Dyer. Moonlit Lavender Pickers, Ménerbes, Provence.
A full moon illuminates the lavender fields of Provence beneath the hilltop village of Ménerbes in France. This delightful landscape painting by British artist John Dyer captures the activity of lavender picking and the wonderful sky line created by the ancient Provençal buildings. Swallows fly across the sky and shooting stars blaze a trail through the heavens.
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.
