John Dyer Painting. View through the Olives to Gordes, Provence
Summer holiday fun in Provence is the theme of this delightful canvas by John Dyer which features the hilltop village of Gordes in the Luberon. Olive trees dot the landscape and create a frame for the beautiful buildings of the village. Swifts fly across the Provençal sky and lines of vines fill the valley floor. Wonderful.
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.
