Henry McLaughlin Painting “Dwellingup Hills” 140cm x 110cm.
This is a beautiful oil on canvass by Henry McLaughlin of the hills in Dwellingup in the Darling Range in Western Australia. It is tastefully framed and will grace any contemporary or vintage home. Also it is well suited for an office, winery or restaurant.
It is an unusually large painting for McLaughlin because his average size art is generally around 30cm x 30cm. However this painting is a massive 120cm x 90cm and framed it measures 140cm x 110cm.
Well-known artist Arthur Twells inspired McLaughlin in his early years. In Australia he was a member of the West Australian Police Force. His talents as a landscape artist were recognised by Mr. Athol Webb, Commissioner for the West Australian Police Force. His first commission was to paint a collection of works detailing Western Australia's Historic Police Buildings. These now hang in Police Headquarters and form part of Western Australia's history.
In later years his inspiration comes from masters such as Arthur Streeton, Hans Heysen, Leonard Long. The works convey an escape from the harshness of urban life to the simplicity and beauty of natural landscapes in Western Australia. McLaughlin’s works are collected throughout Australia and overseas.
We have a number of McGlaughlin paintings, but we are moving interstate and we feel this one should remain in Western Australia.
