August

Twelve Months of Flowers: August (no date) by Jacob van Huysum.

The eighth month in paintings. Alan Bennett is a British artist, not to be confused with the well-known British playwright of the same name. There is, however, a slight connection between playwright and Henry Scott Tuke: Bennett’s BBC film Portrait or Bust (1994) involves an exploration of Leeds Art Gallery during which there’s a glimpse of Tuke’s The Bathers, one of the artist’s many studies of unclothed boys.

    The Mary Newcomb reminds me a little of one of Australia’s really interesting landscape painters, the late Fred Williams.
