This is John Dyer's first ever painting of Trevaunance Cove at St Agnes in Cornwall. This amazing beach and bay have made a brilliant subject for the artist. People can be seen swimming in the water, surfers catch the waves and families relax on the sand among the colourful Cornish fishing boats. A perfect way to have a glimpse of the Cornish summer in your home all year round.
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.
