T00006 CLIFFS 1954
Inscr. ‘John Maxwell’ 54' b.r.
Watercolour, 14 1/2×21 1/2 (37×55).
Purchased from the artist (Cleve Fund) 1955.
The artist wrote from Dalbeattie (15 April 1955): ‘The picture was painted in the studio from a drawing made on the spot at the coast near here. The drawing is almost purely factual-essentially a structural affair - and the scheme of colour an attempt to convey the mood and feeling of the place.’
