Middle Eastern scene with female figure, oil on coarse textured board, signed H. Burns. 20th Century, c1990.
Dimensions : Frame : 642mm x 540mm x 18mm. Image : 600mm x 500mm.
Condition/Notes : The oil painting is in good condition with vibrant colour depicting the verdant garden scene. The base board has a very coarse textured surface resembling grains of sand, which have probably been applied in an initial mix prior to commencing the work, which imparts an unusual finish to the work. The scene is interesting and conforms to Islamic mores. The painting is signed by the artist H. Burns in the lower rh corner. Another interesting aspect of the painting is the large stoned wall section along the base of the painting which appears to almost present the scene as a staged view of an idealistic Arabian vista. The wooden frame is well made and in good condition with light wear to edges. The back is sealed with hardboard and framing tape. Hooks and wire attached. Please view the images below :
