The Cricket Match

Price Upon Request

About

A highly unusual subject for Simeon. He has in the past painted several football matches but this is the only Cricket Match that we are aware of. This picture is not set in his beloved Cornwall but is perhaps a scene from a trip from his home county of Cheshire to neighbouring Lancashire, the smoking chimneys in the background hint of an industrial area reminiscent of industrial landscape artist LS Lowry. An outing not to be missed by Auntie Dot & Trixie!
