Provenance: Roger Folley; Alasdair Dunbar; Hammer Mill Oast Collection
Typical of many of the sheets forming part of Dunbar’s residual studio - the Hammer Mill Oast Collection - discovered half a century and more after her 1960 death, these studies, each a delight in itself, tease the Dunbar scholar because there are no exterior references, similar images are not known to appear elsewhere and there is very little on which to base a possible date. Clearly there’s room for further research...
