William Cooper, South Cornwall
William Cooper (1923–2011)
Date of work unknown
oil on board
Cooper uses oils painted on board to create this captivating and detailed painting of a harbourside in Cornwall. Cooper’s brushstrokes are delicate and small which makes the painting stand out and have a softer look. The image in this painting is of a group of people spending time round the harbour and being together as a community. This gives a sign of hope to people to be together again and be able to get back to normality after being in isolation for so long. What are your thoughts on how this painting brings hope for the future?
