Description 

One of several paintings that we were lucky enough to acquire by Sylvia Mousley an artist based on the Hampshire coast.

Sylvia's work blazes an exciting path from strictly representational right through to abstract; and this painting is in a pleasing area somewhere between. The subject is 'Mead End, Near Sway' (see label pic) on the edge of the New Forest National Park. Sway is perhaps best known for Sway Tower. It is 66 metres (200 ft) tall and is a Grade II listed building. It is also known as 'Peterson's Folly' it was built by Judge Andrew Thomas Turton Peterson on his private estate from 1879-1885. It remains the tallest non-reinforced concrete structure in the world.
 
The painting is executed in oils on a very heavy hand made watercolour paper. This loosely structured composition is all about colour and texture; to my great frustration this is difficult to show in a photograph. In actuality the surface has the rather satisfying texture of a salt glazed ceramic.
 
Artist: Sylvia Mousley (signed in monogramme)

Date: '60s (estimate)

Size (painting): 38.5cm x 56cm

Medium: oil on heavy paper

Condition: good, commensurate with age, There is a small crease in the middle of  the right hand edge (see pic) and at some stage it has been partially rolled and will need flattening (but that's what framing is for).
