JOHN COPNALL
(1928-2007)
Red Landscape II
(1961)
Oil on masonite
36" x 24" (915mm x 610mm)
Signed and dated 1961 upper left
(Inscribed with title verso)
Provenance: Direct from the artists' estate
Mark Barrow Fine Art represents the artists' estate
Copnall based many of his works of this period on rock
formations near his farmhouse in Retama, and although the
paintings are not literal representations of the landscape, the
heavy impasto paint seems to almost take on the very
essence of the stone itself, glowing in the hot, bright Spanish
sunshine.
