Ronald Olley
Ronald Olley (b.1923) - Signed & Framed c. 2000 Oil, Horses Slain in Mud

Unknown

$733

About

An arresting and dramatic oil by the British listed artist Ronald Olley (b.1923), portraying a fallen horse on the battlefield, with a soldier at its side. The scene is characteristic of the First World War, and the artist's research and personal experience of war is evident. Flames lick the ground in the distance, and the use of a layered palette adds texture and definition. The framing of the subject is suggestive of the desolate surroundings, and the overall work conveys both the physical and emotional impact of the war years, on both men and helpless animals. Well-presented in an unpainted light wooden frame, as shown. With a label inscribed 'Horses Shot, Too Tired Merely to Stir...Slain by Mud (Ivor Gurney)' Signed. On canvas.
