Kenneth Adfield (fl. 1940/50)   BIOGRAPHY

 SOLD
 
The Cliff, 1949
Framed (ref: 480)

Signed, titled on label on reverse;
oil on canvas, 14 x 18 in. (35.5 x 45.7 cm)


 


This composition appears to be a view from the cliffs below Roedean towards Rottingdean, or possibly further east between Seaford and Eastbourne in East Sussex. There are clear overtones of Eric Ravilious and Paul Nash. Ravilious, taught by Nash, had strong associations with East Sussex. Adfield, about whom little is known, is recorded as having once exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1950.

We are grateful to David Buckman and Grant Waters for their assistance.
