John Dyer Painting. Lavender Lovers, Sault, Lavender,Provence, France.
A day out in the lavender fields of Provence, at Sault, inspired the artist to paint this energetic and romantic painting. An autobiographical painting that captures the colour and feel of the lavender wonderfully. Impasto paint forms the lavender in the foreground and the village of Sault creates a warm Provençal background to this special painting.
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.
