Bedtime Story (1955 or before). Bernard Dunstan (English, 1920-2017). Oil on board. Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.

Much of the charm of his compositions, especially the nudes, comes from their accidental quality. While Dunstan did sometimes construct pictures in his studio using a hired model, he seemed happiest to “come across” a motif or pose.
