Landscape with River by Ronald Ossory Dunlop

Though not signed, Dunlop's name appears verso, apparently in his hand. The picture was originally purchased from the artist's wife.

The tightly-structured composition and the impasto paint - applied 'like butter' as Dunlop said - is typical of the artist's pre-WWII work, perhaps dating from the late 1930s.

'The ideal in palette-knife work is to put each small dab of paint in the right place, as in a mosaic, and not to disturb or alter the freshness of the thick impasto.'
