A beautifully detailed little oil painting on paper by listed artist Clive Madgwick RBA. This is a painting of Melford Church in Suffolk, near to where the artist lived. It is a typical British countryside scene but painted beautifully and in such detail that every time one looks at it one sees another aspect of the painting. It comes in its original oval gilt artist’s frame which measures 28 x 23 cm (11″ x 9″), with the picture itself measuring 17 x 11 cm (6.75″ x 4.25″).
