Francis Wynne Thomas (1907-1989)

Artist Name Francis Wynne Thomas (1907-1989)
Title Couple in a Snowy Mountainous Landscape
Description This dramatic snowy mountainous landscape oil painting is by British artist Francis Wynne Thomas. It was painted circa 1945 when Thomas was in Germany painting. The composition is a series of snow covered mountains, viewed from the top of the nearest mountain. It is a glorious sunny day with a blue sky. In the foreground, a couple stand taking in the view around them, their skis upturned in the snow behind them. Their relative size helps to put into perspective the vastness of the mountains. Interestingly, there are three sets of skis and only two people in the painting. Does the third set belong to the artist who has is painting Plein Air before skiing down with them? Thomas uses a superb palette of blues, purples and pinks for the snow and is clearly a fan of snowy scenes which he captures perfectly with great brushwork. A fantastic example of Thomas' work and we would welcome any thoughts on the exact mountain location.
