About the Work
This is a bit of a biased choice as Ted Lewis was my father-in-law. Most of his works in the Sarjeant’s collection are detailed pen and ink sketches from when he was in Italy in WW2. I prefer the strong colours in this landscape. The composition appeals with the strong alternating contrasts of light and dark and the strong verticals as in the trees. There is stillness to the painting and lovely reflections in the lake.
Doug Davidson, Journalist at the Rivercity Press, for the Nov 2019 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.
