Provenance: the artist's wife Jaqueline Pieterson
Both before and after the Second World War Cundall traveled extensively in Europe, painting en plein air
, and was especially drawn to Ireland. Clearly painted in situ, the use of two sheets of paper shows how Cundalls compositions evolved - almost unfolded - in front of him.
It has also been suggested that this is a view of Roundstone Harbour, Connermara.
