Oil on canvas on board, 25cm x 20cm
One of my early paintings… completed when I was 15 years old. Painted from my imagination and inspired by a wonderful exhibition of Old Master paintings held Dec ’79 – Feb ’80 at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney. The exhibition included works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Caravaggio and many others. I remember being totally captivated by a painting entitled: “A view of Pavlovsk Park” (1833) by Mikhail Ivanovich Lebedev (1811-37).
