Figures by River
Artist: Unknown
Medium: Oil on canvas
Size: 70.5 x 61 cm

Oil on canvas painting created by unknown artist. The composition of the image is rectangular horizontally. The scene is situated on the riverside. The horizontality, which is determined by the laying of the canvas and the horizontal painted banks of the river, is broken by vertical four human figures on the first plan.

On the left side of this group of figures we can recognize a standing man and sitting woman and on the right sitting and standing women. The whole of the second plan is occupied by a large river which is stretched cross the surface of the canvas. The other bank of the river is full of trees. Probably is the big park, but it’s hard to say which place or even which country is that.

The work is painterly – brushstrokes are visible, and linearity is blurred. The composition is static and calm. The colour is warm (browns, beige). The figures are very dark painted. These dark figures look very interesting on the much more lighter background – it adds to their a secretiveness.

The painting is unsigned. Framed in a wooden, gilded frame.

This painting was donated to FARA Balham.
