|Description||This lovely British Post Impressionist 1950's landscape oil painting is from a collection of Peter L Field paintings acquired from the family. A vibrant pallet of blues and green hills in the background seem the destination, whilst in the foreground the road enticingly bends round and out of sight into the valley and river. A really lovely landscape drawing ones eye down into the valley then up into the hills beyond which we believe to be Wales.
