Richard Orpen

b. 1863 - d. 1938
Object Date: 1930 Watercolour on paper

In Landscape, Orpen has achieved space and distance using naturalistic colours on tinted paper to depict the seashore and distant headland, with a billowing white cloud above. This sensitively painted view is probably somewhere in Co. Donegal, his most frequented location for painting en plein air.
