Stewart, Barbara: Across the Park


An attractive urban composition reminiscent of L.S.Lowry’s work but in no way an imitation of it. This oil painting on board is in excellent condition and is attractively framed. Although not signed to the front, Barbara Stewart has inscribed the painting with her name, address and the title of her work on the reverse.

More images can be provided on request.
