Untitled Impressionist Portrait

by Hazel Bruce Dunlop (1911-2005)

 

A charming and emotive oil on board portrait depicting an elderly woman drinking a cup of tea and smoking a cigarette. She has a stoic expression on her face and is most definitely mulling over something quite important.

 

The impressionist brush strokes are quite accomplished and, along with the colour palette translates to the viewer with the feeling of the woman. The painting has a slightly unfinished feeling that we really love.

 

I would probably date this piece to the 1960s/1970s period.

 

Hazel Bruce Dunlop mainly painted portraits, she was born in Borneo and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art with Henry Tonks, Philip Wilson Steer and Randolph Schwabe. She was married to the artist Francis Edwin Hodge, member of the United Society of artists, with which she showed, also with Society of Women Artists, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Royal Academy of Arts and Paris Salon. She Lived in London.

 

Provenance: this painting was obtained by Michael Goatley Antiques when he cleared out her her personal studio.

 

Looks great unframed but would also look great framed up and would grace any collection or interior design project.

 

Measuring: 50cm X 40.5cm

 

The painting is in great vintage condition, there are a couple of nicks on the edge of the board, these seem original and there are a couple of drops on the painting surface itself but I am unsure whether this is intentional by the artist so have left it there rather than cleaning them off. Please see photos.
