This is a rare early atmospheric work in impasto oils from 1971, using muted pastel colours, in very good original condition. There is an evocative sense of the light beating down onto the water in this Winter Landscape painting. Reframed in a vintage wooden moulding painted in magnolia, signed and dated on the front of the canvas, with full authentication.
