Sketch of a seated woman carrying pot plants
Framed (ref: 9020)
Pen and ink on paper laid on card. 6½ x 6¾ in. (16.5 x 17.2 cm)
Provenance: Roger Folley; Alasdair Dunbar; Hammer Mill Oast Collection
Several images of a seated woman bearing plants in pots often appear in Dunbar’s sketches from the period 1945-52, perhaps in preparation for a much larger picture in a similar style to her pre-war images of women associated with the fruits of the Earth. However, no such painting appears to have come from this comfortably domestic sketch.
