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.
