John Dyer Painting. Mother and Child, Borneo Orangutans
"Whilst living and painting in the rainforest of Borneo a mother orangutan with her child visited me often. It was a beautiful moment to watch her cradling her infant in her arms, just as we would do with a child of our own. Magical."
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.
