A couple wave at the swimmers and fisherman on the River Fowey. Looking through the blue echiums and palm trees in the foreground our view is back towards Fowey and the headland beyond. A delightful John Dyer painting of one of Cornwall's favourite seaside towns.
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.
