Painting of the Langdale Pikes from Blea Tarn, Lake District, England
Watercolour painting by Edward Grieg Hall (1929-2017) of mountain lake with road/track alongside and clump of trees on a promontory into the lake. Based on his other works in the Lake District, and the topography shown in the painting, this is probably a depiction of the Langdale Pikes from Blea Tarn. Signed lower right, E. Grieg Hall. Framed in a mid-century painted frame with fabric rebate/slip.
