Independent Lina Bryans

Independent painter Lina Bryans was known for her portraits.

But I really like her landscapes. Especially the ones she made in the 1960s and early 1970s before she could no longer paint.

I think her friendship with Ian Fairweather had rubbed off and she had slowly begun to make works with more abstract overtones.

Like this landscape in 1958.

It’s a glorious bush scene with not a horizon in sight.

Beautiful clean palette.
