John Dawson Signed Exceptionally Large Surreal Oil Painting of Two Figures



A very amazing, both in composition and sure stature, original oil on canvas painting of two figures (Therapy session, anyone?) by American artist John Dawson who specializes in figurative art (both painting and sculptural) that are generally both surreal and psychological in nature. This particular work is both strangely grotesque and beautiful at the same time. The painting is signed by the artist. Would be an eye-catching work in about any setting. Dimensions: 61" high, 73" wide, 1.5" deep.
