A wonderful Oil Painting on canvas by Barbara Gudrun Sibbons of a Summer harvest scene. Excellently painted and in very nice condition. Comes in a nice gilt frame which measures; 65cm wide x 54cm high, approx.
GUDRUN SIBBONS was born in 1925 in Annaberg in Silesia, Germany. Her studies took her to Berlin, Breslau and Hamburg, when WWII intervened and during this period, she served as a nurse. After the war, she was working as a secretary, when she met her future husband Bill Sibbons, a professional portrait painter. They moved to London and married in 1949. She worked as a laboratory assistant, whilst painting as a hobby.
She started selling her paintings on the Hyde Park railings in the 1950s and, after selling paintings to such famous people as David Niven and Erroll Flynn, became an instant success and her paintings have attracted much interest and high prices ever since. She now lives on the south coast.
Her paintings are in oils and she specialises in landscapes and coastal scenes in the Dutch old master style, with powerful skies reminiscent of Turner. (click on picture to enlarge image) (ZZ+G)210114 (Overseas buyers please contact.)
