In memory of Brian Finemore, Lina Bryans gave one of her major late works, Landscape Quartet, to the National Gallery of Victoria.
| Lina Bryans, Landscape Quartet, 1971, oil on canvasboard (4 panels) |
What an amazing painting.
And finally her last two paintings.
Softly swirling pale landscape.
| Lina Bryans, Cooper Meander, 1971, oil on canvas on hardboard, 90 x 121.5 cm |
Bryans had said ‘colour excited me’ and I think this work is one of her most exciting paintings of the elements with its quiet colour.
| Lina Bryans, Waterhole, 1973, oil on canvas on board, 81.5 x 101.8 cm |
