Original Painting Of a snowy Malvern By Olwen Tarrent.


Painted on canvas and framed in a contemporary wooden golden frame. Shipping will be with a personal courier within the UK included in the price.

A fabulous painting in the post impressionist style. Showing a very snowy scene with the Malvern Hills in the background. The artist has captured the scene beautifully with the light bouncing off the snow in the foreground. Possibly it’s late afternoon when the sun casts a stunning light over freshly fallen snow.

The beautiful Malvern hills rise up over the town in the background. The town looks still and calm as only it can be on such a snowy day all the town folk trying to keep warm in their homes.

A lovely painting from this accomplished last artist who’s work will only increase in value as time goes by.

Olwen Tarrant FROI

1927 – 2012

Welsh artist Olwen Tarrant was born in Newport in 1927, the third of three daughters. Fate played its hand when suffering serious bouts of hay fever she was prevented from taking part in sports at Newport High school. This meant she stayed in the class room and started to sketch.

Her talent soon became obvious and she went on to study at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London where she won the first of many prizes for her paintings. After graduating she lived in Hutton Essex where she married John Tarrant in 1951.She loved her native Newport and often returned inspired by the beautiful hills and surrounding Welsh countryside. No doubt this eventually led to her move to the Malvern hills where she lived with John from 1995.

Her studio in Upper Welland over looked the stunning hills and provided endless inspiration for her art. She also had a studio in Puerto Pollensa Mallorca where she often painted the surrounding countryside,no doubt loving the light and colour the area provided.

Taking the presidency of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) in London from 1995 to 2001, she was the first lady to assume the role in its 125 year history. She was president for five years meeting members of the Royal family and distinguished guests who viewed the art in the Mall Galleries, home of the Institute.

Olwen painted still life and figure studies as well as landscapes, seascapes and urban scenes. She has a distinctive style which is bold and confident, flowing brush strokes give a dramatic post impressionist style which is instantly recognisable.

She won a great many prizes and awards for her art and sculpture, including the Alan Gourley Memorial award from the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. Her work is held in various prestigious private collections as well as at the House of commons.
