The Artist’s Wife Lynda Reclining (1915). Derwent Lees (Australian, 1885-1931). Oil on board.
At the Slade Lees came into close contact with Augustus John and James Dickson Innes under whose strong influence this work of Lynda reclining with a book ready to read was painted. Lees produced small panel paintings of landscapes or figures in landscapes, swiftly drawn and quickly painted, on working trips to North Wales and the South of France.
