Gudrun Sibbons (b.1925) - Fine Mid 20th Century Oil, Lakeside Fishermen
This evocative, finely detailed landscape work by the listed artist Gudrun Sibbons (b.1925) is in a typical style for the artist. Two fishermen are depicting on the banks of a woodland lake, with a small copse of trees. Foliage frames the scene, and the view is delicately lit by the late afternoon sun, suggestive of the late summer season. The artist has employed both textured areas of impasto and a naturalistic palette, achieving an overall uniformity of palette and composition.
Presented in a light wooden frame with inner gilt detail, as shown.Signed. On board.
In good condition overall, for a picture of this age. Some surface discolouration and yellowing to the varnish. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. The frame has some surface marks and scuffing.

Gudrun Sibbons (b.1925) is a German-born British artist best known for her bucolic landscape paintings. Her works are largely inspired by the atmospheric style of 17th-century Dutch artists like Jacob van Ruisdael, and regularly features epic expanses of sky and sun-dappled clouds. Employing a detailed and realist style, she often includes farmers or fisherman in period dress in her work to give a sense of historical context, such as the peasant family in the oil painting Watering the shire horses. Born in 1925 in Annaberg, Germany, Sibbons fled Germany during World War II to England, where she started painting in her free time. Today, the artist’s work is in many private collections throughout the United Kingdom, including the actor Errol Flynn. She lives and works in the United Kingdom.
