Fabulous impressionist oil on canvas by Marjorie Arnfield - lively and vibrant with lovely thick paint that rises off the canvas giving great depth to the piece. The oil has been been applied with a confident hand - colours are intense and the oil applied with thick impasto, a very appealing painting.
No signature, however recorded provenance: painting was acquired this painting while attending art lessons at Arnfield's property in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. Also labels to verso.

Her landscapes, particularly her paintings of Provence and Spain, are characterized by vivid colours and an impressionistic style. In an interview in the magazine Artists & Illustrators in 1998, Arnfield described her palette of colours, which included ochres, burnt siennas, cadmium, viridian, reds and blues, as "colours that sing"
Marjorie Arnfield was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1930 and brought up in Sunderland. While attending Sunderland College of Art, and King Edward VII College of Art, University of Durham she was taught by distinguished British artists such as Lawrence Gowing, Quentin Bell and Victor Passmore.
