Title

Study for 'Within a waiting grove'


Artist

James Gleeson

Australia

21 Nov 1915 - 20 Oct 2008


About

Gleeson's tonal approach to drawing had a significant impact on 'Within a waiting grove'. It was painted entirely in monochrome, with colour added in washes afterwards. Gleeson made only a few in this way; 'The sower' 1944, is another.
