Glynns Palmer (Active 1920-30)
|Artist Name||Glynns Palmer (Active 1920-30)|
|Title||Allegorical Figurative Landscape|
|Description||This fascinating busy figurative allegorical oil painting is by Modern British female artist Glynns Palmer. The painting was painted in 1927 in vivid orange and red tones in a bold and confident manner. The painting may be a reference to a literary or biblical story and would warrant more research. An elderly monk in robes is being led by the hand of a voluptuous woman onto a small boat . Her other hand holds that of a winged child with a quiver of arrows at his side, possibly cupid. Other semi clad women lounge around. A young girl holding a toy, suggestive of her childhood innocence still, appears to be leaving with the monk. To the left of these figures is another dark winged figure. A landscape of fields and trees and a foreboding sky is in the background. Perhaps the suggestion is that faith and innocence are universally recognised and being protected. A fascinating well executed conversation piece painting by a talented female artist.
Signed lower right and dated 1927.
