This is a quick post, more of a note to myself. I just discovered the art of Tom Roberts in Australia’s Impressionists at London’s National Gallery. I like his crisp rendering of bright overhead sun and dark shadows.
Tom Roberts A Break Away! (1891) oil on canvas 137.3 x 167.8cm
It reminds me of some of my favourite dinosaur art, like Neave Parker and Zdenek Burian.
Neave Parker Prehistoric Forest (anyone have date and details for this picture? let me know, thanks!)
Zdenek Burian Gorgosaurus & Scolosaurus (1955) from Prehistoric Animals (1960) (anyone have title and details for this picture? let me know, thanks!)
