Oil on canvas, signed & dated 1931. In original frame and labels verso.
Dodd was an Official War Artist during World War I and was a trustee of the Tate Gallery, 1928-35, being elected RA in 1935. He exhibited extensively at NEAC, RA and RWS and at many other venues and his work is in a number of British public collections, including the Tate which holds an oil of Ely, which is stylistically very similar to this. His brother-in-law was Muirhead Bone. He was best known as a portrait painter but his landscapes are beautifully bright and distinctively stylised.
