Bowles, John Twentieth Century British AR, Seascape (Penzance?)
Bowles, John Twentieth Century British AR, Seascape (Penzance?). 28 x 36 ins., (91.5 x 71 cms.), Oil On Canvas. The vendor acquired the painting from John Bowles. Bowles had a very successful early career, but was totally knocked back by the vast attack of abstraction that occurred with the huge promotion of American Abstract Expressionist art. He was so overwhelmed by being ignored by galleries for being figurative, that he had a bonfire in his garden of his paintings.
