We are delighted to acquire an Amos Ferguson to add to our collection.
Although it is not dated, we think Amos painted it in the early 70's because of the delicate lines and awkward landscape perspective common in his work of that era. The painting depicts a surrey horse and cart, hauling a guide and two tourists up a hill while a lady cycles down the other side.
Saskia lights up when she describes the painting, "I love this painting because of its boldness and confidence... the horse's legs are completely outstretched indicating its ascent up the hill, Amos's confidence describing such a complex scene is delightful. It makes me smile!"
