Study for 'Within a waiting grove'
- Not on display
- Further information
Gleeson's tonal approach to drawing had a significant impact on 'Within a waiting grove'. It was painted entirely in monochrome, with colour added in washes afterwards. Gleeson made only a few in this way; 'The sower' 1944, is another.
