  • Figure in a Lanscape
    By Francis Plummer
    Located in London, GB
    Oil on board, 62cm x 42cm, (70cm x 50cm framed). The picture is in good condition. Plummer trained at the Royal Academy Schools in the early 1950s, championed by Stanley Spencer and Sir Herbert Read, he was the recipient of the coveted Leverhulme Scholarship.
