Chrysanthemums

Oil on canvas
Purchased 1947
Museum number 4-1947

Dunlop was well-known in Manchester as a landscape, portrait and flower painter.

This is a lively painting full of colour and texture. Dunlop has loaded his brush with paint before applying it to the canvas, as a result the paint stands slightly proud of the surface of the canvas. This is known as impasto.
