Bob Richardson, Edale

Notes

Before working in the pastels for which he is renowned, Bob Richardson used oils, and this is an early work that was featured in a 1970 exhibition at the Brunner Library Northwich. A review of the show in the Northwich Chronicle said of this painting: “The pale gray-green Edale Valley, so deceptively simple except that he has grasped the way hill and valley fit together, the flat alluvial soil in the valley centre, and the way the farmhouse fits squarely on it. The foreground rises gently towards you – one of the most difficult things to convey in painting.”
