David Rolt (British 1916- 1985), ‘The Woodside Willow’, Oil on canvas
The painting illustrates the willow beside the lake at Woodside, Frant, Sussex. Despite the willow dying many years ago the Woodside estate has been owned by the same family since the mid-1930s. Rolt was a family friend and painted a number of scenes at Woodside.
This picture offers an insight into Rolt’s lifelong dedication to depicting landscapes. A number of paintings were produced in Berkshire and Wiltshire, where the artist spent the last two decades of his life.
