Figures by the sea
Ivan Peries (1921-1988)
Probably signed and dated, but writing almost invisible. A label on the back shows that the picture was entered in a Ministry of Education examination in art and design in 1949, and reads "Fishing village in Dehiwela, CEYLON. Six figures, a hut, a boat and a tree. Tempera oil on gesso panel." As the word CEYLON is written in capitals it can be
inferred that the examination was conducted on behalf of the Ministry of Education in England.
24 5/8 x 33 7/8 inches (62 x 86 cm)
Tempera and oil on gesso panel
